Bruce Springsteen's Tony-award winning show Springsteen On Broadway will premiere on Netflix on December 15th -- which coincides with the show's 236th and final show at Manhattan's Walter Kerr Theatre. Springsteen On Broadway is based on "The Boss's" best-selling autobiography Born To Run and features a 14-song set featuring Springsteen telling his personal narrative with his acoustic guitar and piano. The show features a special two-song appearance by his wife and E Street Band member Patti Scialfa.

Springsteen's longtime manager, Jon Landau explained, "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. (Netflix's Chief Content Officer) 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."

Bruce Springsteen told us that -- even during his earliest days as a musician -- he's always taken great efforts to not only entertain with his music, but to inform his audience as well: "I guess you would say that we've devised a language by which we assist ourselves (laughs) and our audience in making sense of the world and their lives, and hopefully in finding both our and their place in the world. That's the job that my favorite movies, my favorite pieces of art, my favorite music always did for me, was that, in some fashion, the artist says, 'OK, take this, and go find your place out there.' It's a passing on of energy and of thought." at Manhattan's Walter Kerr Theatre.
