"How does one bring cameras into such a space and not feel like they’re imposing?" says David Anthony. "The hushed, churchlike reverence inside Walter Kerr (Theatre) is what made the show a destination event for fans from across the globe, and while having it easily accessible on Netflix is much more convenient, is it possible to translate the performance’s true power? Perhaps more importantly, is it in service of what Springsteen has spent the bulk of this decade trying to express?" He adds: "The camera work in this early going is a bit manic, cutting between shots in a way that feels more like a comedy special than a modern take on VH1 Storytellers. But slowly, the pace settles, allowing for Springsteen to lock eyes with the camera and talk directly to the people on the other side. The joy of Springsteen On Broadway, both live and taped, is that it feels like a long, unbroken take."
