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.

One Tennis Shoe
Harvey needs to broach a delicate subject with his wife, Sylvia, concerning some of her disturbing habits…
The Best Daddy
Lisa's got the best daddy in the world. After all, he bought her a pony for her birthday. Too bad he shot it dead. Or did he?
The Lifeboat is Sinking
Jen and Sherwin sit safely on their bed, but Jen forces her husband to imagine they are on a sinking boat in the middle of a terrible storm.
Bender and his henchmen drag Gibby into a room and throw him to the ground. Gibby protests that he hasn't done anything wrong, but Bender and the others know better. They have found the man responsible for the '70s smiley face and the phrase "Have a nice day," and they're going to make him pay.
Wash and Dry
Marianne stops by the laundromat, but she's horrified to discover that her laundry hasn't been cleaned.
Thinking Up a New Name for the Act
Pete hits on the phrase "Meat and Potatoes" as the perfect name for their vaudeville act, but Lucy doesn't like it. The only words in this farcical sketch are "Meat and Potatoes."
Note: This sketch is the ultimate acting exercise. The only dialogue in the sketch is “Meat and Potatoes” repeated over, but it plays out like an entire Law & Order Episode
Blind Willie and the Talking Dog
Blind Willie sings the blues and asks passersby if they can spare a nickel or dime to help him and his hungry dog. But his dog can't understand why Willie refuses to use the fact that he owns a talking dog to make some real money.
