If you’ve visited this blog before, you probably know I am a HUGE Springsteen fan. So when I found out he was playing an “intimate” gig at the historic Apollo Theater in NYC, I knew I had to do everything in my power to be there. My husband and his filmmaking partner were planning on shooting a short film in New York in March and wrote a storyline inspired by my fascination with Bruce and the upcoming show. We shot the entire film in 3 days and used beautiful Manhattan and Brooklyn as our settings. We even have a cameo by Peter Hale (Allen Ginsberg‘s former assistant and keeper of his estate) at the lovely Cowgirl restaurant in Greenwich Village. There are no Bruce or E Street Band cameos, but we did film in front of the Apollo on the night of the show (an hour and a half before showtime!) I unfortunately did not make it inside (it was nearly impossible without a VIP ticket), but I still had a fabulous time shooting this film.This is our cinematic love letter to Bruce and New York City, wrapped up in Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Hope you enjoy watching as much as we did making it.
For best video quality, it is recommended to watch in HD
