Rocky: The Musical

Expected Premiere:

February 2014



The new Broadway production ‘Rocky the Musical’ will be hitting the theatres at a time when expectations from Broadway are higher than ever, particularly after the amazingly popular Mamma Mia! The musical is based on the Academy Award winning movie, and is featuring the score by Tony Award winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. The play has been produced and premiered in German already and has garnered great reviews. Now it is being made into an English and is scheduled to go up for public early next year. However Rocky the Musical tickets are already up for sale and are selling hot, since fans want to be the first ones to see this amazing new musical production.

What Could You Expect?

Since the play is not out for viewing yet, no one can exactly know what thrilling storyline awaits the audiences. But since the play is an adaptation- at least to some degree- of the movie, there is a plausible chance of the story to be similar as well, to a certain degree. The remarkable story of the film if brought to life on stage in a theatre performance would certainly sweep audiences off their feet. In the film, which describes an era of the seventies in Philadelphia settings, the protagonist is named Rocky who is actually a small time boxer, working for a loan shark. The film then follows the story of this boxer as he trains himself for a huge boxing match with the help and encouragement of his friends. The twists and turns keeps the audience interested while the match date draws closer. Finally a breathtaking fight takes place by the end of which Rocky’s girlfriend climbs into the ring and he professes his love to her without caring about the announcement of the result. It would be incredible to watch the same story live in the theatre production; the sky rocketing demand for Rocky the musical tickets is hardly surprising.
