Rocky The Musical
The storyline of the musical is based on the 1976 namesake movie, which was the highest grossing film of the year. The screenplay of the hit movie was done by the iconic Sylvester Stallone. The movie was such a success that it earned three Oscar Awards which included one for the category of “Best Picture”. The iconic saga Rocky was brought to a life by the creative team that has earned the Tony Award five times. This award winning team includes Alex Timbers-the director, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty penned the songs along with book-writer Thomas Meehan. The twenty million dollar premiere production featured boxing choreography by Steven Hoggett and the set was a result of Christopher Barreca’s designs.
The central plot of the musical revolves around the never-made-it boxer named Rocky Balboa. He stumbles into a boxing ring with the unbeatable world heavyweight champ named Apollo Creed. Knowing his past record, Rocky was well aware of his limitations and knew that this match will serve him as a human sacrifice for the bloodthirsty crowd. But with the unexpected romantic success with the love of his life Adrian, this underdog feels an adrenaline rush; a driving factor which makes Rocky realize that he’s got something special as well.
The world premiere of the show was conducted at Operettenhaus in Hamburg in 2012. The debut performance resulted in positive reviews featuring cast members Drew Sarich who played the character of Rocky Balboa, Terence Archie played as Apollo Creed and Wietske van Tongeren played Adrian Pennino. The show was initially written in English but for the world premiere it was translated to German. Following the success of the premiere, the musical will be debuting on Broadway this year. Rocky The Musical tickets are now selling for a series of Broadway performances scheduled at the Winter Garden Theatre.
