Bruce Springsteen’s hugely successful Springsteen on Broadway comes to an end after 236 performances on Dec. 15.
And if you’re a fan who couldn’t get in to see the Boss in the tiny Walter Kerr Theatre — or had the self-discipline to not spend a month’s rent money on a ticket — well then congratulations: Your time has finally come.
The autobiographical show, which I called “an extraordinary two hour evening,” goes live on Netflix on Dec. 16, and the trailer for the streaming version of the theatrical performance has just been released. The show is directed and produced by Thom Zimny, and for two songs, features Springsteen’s wife Patti Scialfa.
Springsteen on Broadway was extended three times after opening in October 2017. This year, it won a special Tony Award. When the Netflix production was announced, Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau stressed the streaming service’s capability of bringing the show to fans around the globe. “The purpose of the film is to bring this incredibly intimate show to Bruce’s entire audience intact and complete."
