The Boss is Coming to Town! And just in time for Christmas.
Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show is landing on Netflix and the streaming service dropped the first look trailer of “Springsteen on Broadway,” showing the intimate performance that earned him a Tony Award.
Springsteen concludes his run on Broadway on Dec. 15, and Netflix will make their recorded special available the next day, Dec. 16.
Springsteen’s show is based on his autobiography “Born to Run,” featuring personal anecdotes about his family, his hometown and the state of the country, all spliced in between acoustic renditions of songs like “Born to Run, “Thunder Road” and “Brilliant Disguise.” It also features a special appearance and performance by Patti Scialfa.
“I want to know my story, your story, and where we’re going together as a people,” Bruce says in the trailer for the special. “More than anything else, I wanted to be able to tell that story to you.”
“Springsteen on Broadway” was filmed live for Netflix at Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre and directed and produced by Emmy Award-winner Thom Zimny, who also directed the concert special from 2001 “Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live in New York City.” 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.
Netflix will release “Springsteen on Broadway” on Dec. 16. Watch the trailer above.
