Rocky, the massively popular movie about the ultimate underdog is now a triumphant Broadway event that's "unlike anything you've ever seen in the theater," according to NBC. 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. This innovative stage production is brought to life by a five-time Tony Award-winning creative team and Sylvester Stallone, writer and star of the Academy Award-winning 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.

Engrossing performance and acting. One confused sexual compulsive writer, one married man with difficulty coming out, the woman he married in distress. There was some back and forth in terms of time of action which may have been confusing, but didn't really seem to matter much.
Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater.
Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out_) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia_). Four of Britain’s most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey’s End_), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey_), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) will star.
