In This Corner: Rocky Prepares for Broadway (Rehearsal Photos)
In this fight, love wins. Based off of the iconic movie of the same title, Rocky tells the story of underdog Rocky Balboa and his incredible climb to the top. Rocky is down and out of luck as he struggles to stay on his feet in downtown Philadelphia. When he is presented with the chance of a lifetime to become a legend, he works his way to the top and won’t let the chance pass by. However, when love enters the picture, Rocky must choose between his last chance at first love and his only chance at making history. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at Rocky the musical now in rehearsal for Broadway!
Rocky is set to begin previews February 11th, 2014 and officially open March 13th at the Winter Garden Theater on Broadway between 50th and 51st streets. Rocky the Musical features music and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty with a book by Thomas Meehan and Sylvester Stallone. Rocky is directed by Alex Timbers and comes to Broadway after debuting in Hamburg in 2012. The production continues to run there while this second mounting launches on Broadway.
