Springsteen on Broadway, which earned music icon Bruce Springsteen a 2018 Special Tony Award, will debut on Netflix December 16, one day after the production ends its Broadway run at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Watch the trailer for the TV event above.
The show, part concert and part storytelling event, was captured during two added invite-only performances July 17 and 18.
Springsteen on Broadway opened in October 2016 at the Walter Kerr, which, at less than 1,000 seats, is one of the most intimate venues the musician has played. The show received acclaim from critics and theatregoers alike and routinely earns a spot as a box-office frontrunner.
Built around Springsteen's 2016 memoir Born to Run, the engagement is billed as a solo show but frequently features a guest appearance by Springsteen's wife and fellow musician Patti Scialfa.
“The purpose of the film is to bring this incredibly intimate show to Bruce’s entire audience intact and complete,” said Jon Landau, manager to Springsteen, in an earlier statement. “In addition to its many other virtues, Netflix has provided for a simultaneous worldwide release which is particularly important for our massive international audience. Ted Sarandos and the entire company’s support has been a perfect match for Bruce’s personal commitment to the filmed version of Springsteen on Broadway.”
