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.
