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.
