In downtown Philadelphia, a down-and-out boxer is struggling to get by when the chance of a lifetime comes along. He doesn't have long to get back in fighting shape, but if he does it, this could be his best shot to become a champion, and his last chance for love. The massively popular movie about the ultimate underdog inspired this innovative new stage production, brought to life by a five-time Tony Award-winning creative team, including director Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), songwriting team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime), and book writers Thomas Meehan (The Producers) and Sylvester Stallone, writer and star of the Rocky films. Featuring 20 original songs, plus hits from the films ("Eye of the Tiger" and "Gonna Fly Now"), Rocky is not only an adrenaline-fueled spectacle for anyone who was a fan of the movie, but it's also a surprising tale of romance that will touch the hearts of longtime musical theater fans.

I'm a huge fan of playwright Adam Rapp. His plays in general, including this one, are not for everyone. When you enter the theater there is a sign warning about nudity and gunshots. And indeed there is a lot of full nudity, both female and male.
The play is very well-written, as all his work is. There's been a terrible war; men are being tortured - women being entered in a database. The action onstage focuses on a woman whose husband is missing - she is holed up trying to survive.
The acting is excellent and many of the themes are disturbing. It's a beautiful work about an ugly reality. Recommended for those who don't like things tied in neat packages - there's a lot of room for interpretation and debate.
