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.

This was a great play. The actors were talented. I related due to the actors playing Puerto Rican characters.
The theme was drug abuse, war flashback, I could almost see what was being described. There were characters chatting online about drug abuse and rehabilitation. There was comedy although, not too much. This was a serious issues but, it was so enjoyable. The beginning was a bit slow, but after the intermission it picks up and at the end we all gave a standing ovation. I was so pleased I attended and told my friends about it.
This show's running time is two hours and 10 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.
