News: SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY Will Allow Guests Vaccinated With FDA or WHO Approved Vaccine

Following amended New York State guidelines, Springsteen on Broadway has announced that the production is now permitted to welcome guests who are fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO approved vaccine.

This announcement comes after a recent controversy that arose when the production announced it will only allow patrons who were vaccinated with US-approved vaccines, including the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson. This excluded those who received the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine, which has not been approved for use in the US but is popular in Canada, the UK and other countries.


What we're listening to: Jennifer Hudson Sings 'Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)' From RESPECT; Co-Written by Carole King!

Academy Award-winning actress and GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Jennifer Hudson unviled a new original song entitled "Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)"-co-written with 4-time GRAMMY Award winner, Kennedy Center Honoree, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame Inductee Carole King (marking their first collaboration) and Jamie Hartman [Lewis Capaldi, Christina Aguilera] out Friday. GRAMMY Award-winning Black Eyed Peas co-founder and mega-producer will.i.am produced the track.


See you bright and early tomorrow, BroadwayWorld!
