Boss delivers big on opening night, talks 2020 arrest

The times, and the show, they are a-changing.

A lot has happened since Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa last performed the hit “Springsteen on Broadway” on stage in December 2018. A worldwide pandemic, a national reckoning on race, a failed insurrection of the U.S. Capitol, and one of the stars of show was arrested, to name a few.

On Saturday, Springsteen and Scialfa delivered an energetic, poignant and reflective restaging of “Springsteen on Broadway” at the St. James Theatre, with new dialogue and new songs, too.

“American Skin (41 Shots),” originally written about 1999 shooting death of Amadou Diallo, a 23-year-old unarmed immigrant from Guinea by four New York City plain-clothes police officers, was added to the show. Its performance invoked the May 2020 death of George Floyd at the hands of four officers in Minneapolis.

“We are living in troubled and troubling times,” said Springsteen in the lead up

Broadway is back – starting with The Boss.

Bruce Springsteen, 71, took the stage for his part-singing, part-storytelling show at Jujamcyn’s St. James Theatre in New York City on Saturday night. Springsteen on Broadway is the first production to open since Broadway went dark in March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Letter to You singer was greeted by a sustained, roaring standing ovation from the audience. “Shut the f— up, please!” he had to say, just so he could start the show.

Proof of vaccination was required to enter the theater. “Unmasked, sitting next to each other,” Springsteen said of the crowd, which filled nearly all 1,684 seats in the house. “It’s been a long time coming.”

New & Used Motorcycles For Sale

Car & Automotive,automotive industry,Car & Mechanical,Car & Classic,motorcycleMany of the modifications occurring in the automotive market immediately, together with tightened credit markets in a capital-intensive business and increased government involvement are the latest international challenges. At the end of World Warfare II the American car industry had intact amenities, considerably enlarged by building for military wants. There was also an amazing demand for cars. This case invited a number of attempts by newcomers to enter the industry, but all proved unsuccessful. The most promising, Kaiser-Frazer Corporation, lasted some 10 years but lacked the monetary, technical, and gross sales assets to compete when the car market returned to normal. By the mid Fifties Kaiser-Frazer had stopped producing the whole lot but Willys Jeeps, an operation that it had acquired by shopping for Willys-Overland. The manufacture of Jeeps continued as a subsidiary of Kaiser Industries until 1970, when the division was sold to American Motors Company (AMC) in a … Read More
