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.

AWESOME is a great word to discribe the event! My boyfriend and I went, not knowing exactly what to expect but dressed the part. He wore a throw back Member's Only jacket, black T, jeans, red All Stars and 1980 shades. I wore a blk mini dress, hot pink fishnets, short boots w/ leg warmers, big hair, lace gloves and a hot pink bow in my hair. We fit right in!!
From the second you hit the door you felt as though you went back in time. The setting is 1989 Prom night. And you are as much a part of the show as the actors... Which ROCKED!! My date was actually pulled in to a football huddle in the hall. We got seperated 3 times for dancing too close by a 'teacher' and again by the 'Principal'... The drinks were VERY reasonable at $6 for a Jack and Coke and the music was AMAZING!! We danced our butts off all night! The crowd ranged from a few younger girls 13/15 to about 50ish - with about 50-60 people tops. The atmosphere was soooo 80's prom with all the 'movie type' 80 characters - almost anything would work as far as attire...The 80's was all about the hair, the attitude and the music.. We lived the 80's and LOVED the Prom!!! If you go with an open mind and an intention to Rock all night... You'll have a great time!!
