The show which opened to rave reviews in Germany last November will begin previews at the Wintergarden Theatre on February 11, 2014 with opening night scheduled for March 13. Now for those of you who have been living under a rock for the past thirty-seven years and have never seen the movie here is a description of the musical from the shows official website. Enjoy!
In 1976, an unknown actor wrote and starred in an independent movie about a struggling but indomitable Philadelphia boxer who gets a once-in-a-lifetime shot to go the distance. An underdog story both on-screen and off, Sylvester Stallone's Rocky went on to win the Academy Award® for Best Picture and touch the hearts of millions.
Now, that iconic film has inspired an innovative new stage production, brought to extraordinary life by a five-time Tony Award®-winning creative team, including director Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), book writer Thomas Meehan (The Producers) and songwriting team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime).
Both an adrenaline-infused spectacle and a surprising tale of blossoming romance between two lonely outsiders, ROCKY is a visceral and heart-stopping theatrical experience for everyone brave enough to follow their dream.
Now I don't know about you but I wan to see it even more. How about you? Tickets for Rocky The Musical just went on sale today and I'm sure if word of mouth is any indication I expect to sales to be through the roof. Let's hope. Get your tickets to see Rocky The Musical at the Wintergarden Theatre. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
