You've seen the movie. Now see the show. I have to admit that when they first announced that they were turning Rocky into a musical I wasn't too surprised. After all they've turned almost every other movie into a musical right? Well maybe not all but it sure feels like it. The show which is of course based on the 1976 Academy Award winning movie is set to open tonight on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre. Now believe it or not but I have never been to that theatre.
Yes that's right. In all the years that I have lived here I somehow managed to avoid both Cats and Mamma Mia. Well not anymore because next week theatre fans I am seeing Rocky. That means I have now been in every theatre on Broadway. Well except for the ones like the Times Square Theatre which is empty and the Liberty Theatre which is home to the Liberty Diner. Who knows? Maybe I'll grab a bite to eat after the show and check another theatre off my list.
Now I'm not going to bore you with a synopsis of the show since anybody that is going to see it has already seen the movie. Several times I am guessing. Now as much as I loved the first one I will admit that I am a little partial towards the fourth one. It does have the best soundtrack after all. Maybe if this is a success they will turn the other ones into musicals too. Well except for the fifth one. I don't think anybody wants to sit thru that again. No matter how good the songs are.
Anyway for those of you who are looking to purchase tickets to the show there is no better time than right now. Good seats are now available for all performances and at prices that can't be beat. Just call now and ask for the Rocky "Insider Price" and we will take care of the rest. Watch for tomorrow's blog when I will post the reviews of the show. Let's hope their good. Until next time theatre fans.
