The Show


SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Bruce Springsteen under the lights of Broadway. It is an intimate night with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his stories.


“My vision of these shows is to make them as personal and intimate as possible. I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind… My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung, all of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal—to communicate something of value,” says Springsteen.

At The Theatre

Can I bring signs / Will Bruce be taking requests?

Signs will not be allowed into the theatre for these performances. Bruce wants you to come and experience his story as he tells it in the intimate setting of the Broadway theatre.

Can I use my phone to take pictures during the show?

Photos will be allowed before the performance begins, and when the house lights come up at the end of the show.

All electronic devices should be shut off when the performance begins and the taking of photos or videos during the performance is strictly prohibited. Bruce has chosen this intimate setting to tell his story so he can be close to everybody. He wants you to experience the show directly, not through a device. In addition, every time you raise a camera, take a photo or check your phone for text messages, your seat neighbors will turn to look at you as you create light. Everybody should be there to experience Bruce, and any distractions are unfair to your fellow fans.

What time do doors open?

Doors will open at approximately 6:45PM. Please leave extra time and plan to arrive early for vaccine verification and security checkpoints. The performance begins promptly at 8PM. Latecomers will be seated at management’s discretion if seat location allows them to be seated without disrupting the show or fellow audience members.

How do I get an assistive device?

The St. James Theatre offers audio induction neck loops for those who have a “T” switch on their hearing aid or cochlear implant, and infrared headsets to enhance sound and dialogue. If an assistive device would help you enjoy the show, please visit the headset booth in the Orchestra lobby. There is no charge, but a valid photo ID is required as a deposit.

Is there a bag check at the St. James Theatre?

Guests should limit what they bring to the theatre to a small bag or purse. If you have a bag or large coat, we’d be happy to check it for you. Our coat check is on the Orchestra level. The charge is $3 per item.

Will concessions be available at my performance?

Drinks and snacks can be purchased at the bars on each level of the theatre. Bars will close 5 minutes before the start of the performance. Please bring concessions to your seat to enjoy.

How can I purchase SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY merchandise?

Merchandise will be available for purchase on every level starting 1 hour before curtain and directly after the show.
