Netflix will release Springsteen On Broadway, a film of Bruce Springsteen’s masterful autobiographical Broadway show, following its sold-out run which concludes December 15.
Spingsteen On Broadway is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Tony Award, Academy Award, and 20-time Grammy Award winner Bruce Springsteen.
Based on his worldwide best-selling autobiography Born to Run and nothing short of the theatre event of the year, Springsteen On Broadway is a unique evening with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and own stories—including a special appearance by Patti Scialfa. The intimate performance features personal anecdotes and songs including “Born to Run,” “Thunder Road” and “Brilliant Disguise.”
Springsteen On Broadway was filmed live for Netflix at Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre and directed and produced by Emmy Award-winner Thom Zimny ("Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live in New York City (2001)"). In addition to Zimny, the Netflix original special is produced by the same team that produced “Springsteen On Broadway”, including Springsteen manager Jon Landau, Springsteen tour director George Travis, and Landau Management partner Barbara Carr.
Springsteen On Broadway will launch on December 16 at 8am (Irish time) simultaneously in over 190 countries.
