How Bruce Springsteen Kept Director Thom Zimny on His Toes Making ‘Springsteen on Broadway’
A version of this story about Bruce Springsteen and “Springsteen on Broadway” first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

The Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) category is often the province of comedy specials, from stand-up to politics to icons.

But this year it has a different look — or, perhaps, a different sound, because three of the five nominees are specials featuring huge music stars. There’s Beyoncé’s “Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé,” James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool” and director Thom Zimny’s “Springsteen on Broadway,” a concert film from the Tony-winning show.

Zimny has been working with Springsteen for nearly 20 years on documentaries, videos and concert films — and in that time, he said, he’s learned one big lesson from Springsteen and his manager, Jon Landau: “Come fully prepared, but be ready for changes.”
