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 took our grandkids aged 6. We all loved it. David Alan MIller started out with Tchaikofsky's Nutcracker, played a little Borodin, Mussorsky's Baba Yaga from Pictures at an ex[edition and then Stravinsky's teacher Rimsky Korsakov
Dance of the Tumblirs, my grandaughter pointed out shed just heard that at her mother's band recital.And then a beautifully done Puppet show with the terrific orchestra of the Firebird. done with Bunraku influenced puppetry. THere were lots of kids there aged around 5-7 and it lasted about an hour and a quarter. It was magical and beaautifl. Absoluately wonderful for all of us!
