Netflix Sets Bruce Springsteen Special

Netflix will stream Grammy Award-winning singer Bruce Springsteen’s one-man show, Springsteen on Broadway, this December, the streaming service said Wednesday (July 18).

The special will run Dec. 15, which coincides with the final night of the show’s 236 sold-out performances on Broadway. Springsteen on Broadway is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by the Tony Award, Academy Award and Grammy Award winner, according to Netflix.

“We are thrilled to bring Bruce Springsteen -- a master storyteller, humanitarian and voice of the everyman -- to Netflix in this historic one man show, said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer in a statement. “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.”
