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.

We had seats in Row L on the right wing. These were not as bad as others have said they were. We didn't miss anything. Clearly the mainstay of the cast was Cicely Tyson. Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. framed her performance allowing her to tap emotional chords while transporting the audience into a sentimental and reflective frame of mind. The staging was minimalist and effective giving emphasis to the performance of the actors. Condola Rashad and Tom Wopat gave equally impactful perfomances in supporting Ms. Tyson's quest to return to Bountiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the journey ourselves. Thanks Goldstar for another great outing!
