‘Springsteen on Broadway’ to be shown on Netflix

Springsteen, Netflix


Patti Scialfa and Bruce Springsteen take their bows after “Springsteen on Broadway,” March 15.

On the final day of “Springsteen on Broadway,” Dec. 15, a filmed version of the show will begin streaming on Netflix.

Springsteen’s manager, Jon Landau, said in a press release: “The purpose of the film is to bring this incredibly intimate show to Bruce’s entire audience intact and complete. In addition to its many other virtues, Netflix has provided for a simultaneous worldwide release which is particularly important for our massive international audience.”

The film is being directed and and co-produced by Thom Zimny, who has worked on many of Springsteen’s past film projects.

The total number of “Springsteen on Broadway” performances will be 236. The show — mostly an evening of solo songs and stories, though it also features Springsteen’s wife, Patti Scialfa, on two songs — opened in October 2017.

Springsteen was given a special Tony Award for his work on the show, last month.
