‘Rocky: The Broadway Musical’ Will Punch You in the Heart in 2014

Next February, the musical version of ‘Rocky’ hits Broadway after a successful tryout run in Germany. Yes, there will be singing and boxing, but mostly singing with a focus on the love story between Rocky and Apollo Adrian.

My buddy Ben (who is a theater professional in Philadelphia) says that director Alex Timbers “knows his shit” and that the songwriting team is among the best in the business, which means this could actually be worth catching.

Yes, ‘Rocky’ is probably in my top five movies ever and the musical version has been on my radar since 2011, before Stallone’s involvement when it was just a zygote of an idea. I won’t even apologize for either of those sentiments.
