Springsteen on Broadway tickets generally don’t come cheap, but some fans are in for a bargain: Thirty-two seats at $75 each will be set aside each performance for winners of a digital lottery.
The lottery was announced today by Jujamcyn Theaters and online ticketing sweepstakes company Lucky Seat. The Springsteen on Broadway digital lottery begins today at 9 a.m. ET for performances beginning on Tuesday, June 29. The show runs through Saturday, September 4.
Springsteen on Broadway, which played a sold-out run in 2017-2018, returns tomorrow, June 26, at the St. James Theatre, marking the re-opening of Broadway after 15 months of the Covid shutdown. Tomorrow’s performance is not included in the lottery.
The lottery details are as follows:
