“Springsteen on Broadway” will launch globally on Netflix on December 15, 2018, which is also the final night of Bruce Springsteen’s completely sold out 236-show run at Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway.
Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, says, “We are thrilled to bring Bruce Springsteen — a master storyteller, humanitarian and voice of the everyman — to Netflix in this historic one man show. This groundbreaking experience defies the boundaries of theater, concerts and film and will give our global audience an intimate look at one of the biggest cultural icons of our time.”
Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau adds, “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. 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.'”
