We told you about this last year. Now it’s, like, a thing.
Sports Illustrated posted pictures from the show’s premiere in Germany yesterday. You can view the whole gallery here.
When I first wrote about it, I wondered: It will be interesting to see which way they go with this: The Green Day American Idiot, "fuck you, conventional" wisdom route, with harsh lyricals and simulated on-stage sex (or whatever the Rocky equivalent is– Stallone acting, I suppose), or the Wicked route, with overly fluffed thespians singing gleefully about a rather dark social commentary. I'd vote for the first option, because surely we don't need a Glee'd up version of Gonna Fly Now being played at Flyers games.
Well, judging by the video after the jump, it looks like they went with the latter. Get ready for some falsetto to drum up some faux energy at a sporting event near you.
The musical will be coming to Broadway in 2013. Though Broad Street might be more fitting.
