At the time of publishing, the show is set to become the first to open on Broadway since the coronavirus closed down performances in March 2020.
As reported in the New York Times, “audience members will be required to show proof of full Covid-19 vaccination along with their tickets to enter the [theatre]. Entry times will be staggered, and attendees will be required to fill out a Covid-19 health screening within 24 hours of the show.”
The shows will run on June 26, 29 and 30, July 1-3, 6-10, 13-17 and then August 17-20, 24-28 and 31. The final shows will take place September 1-4. All ticketing info and dates can be found here. Tickets go on sale this Thursday (June 10) at 5pm BST (12pm ET).
In a statement released before his first performance on Broadway, Springsteen said he wanted the show to be “as personal and intimate as possible”. He said: “I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theatres, which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind.
“In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”
The musician dedicated his first performance of Springsteen On Broadway to the late Tom Petty, who died just two days before the Broadway show began its run.
