It’s been a knockout in Germany. Now Sylvester Stallone hopes a musical based on his beloved boxing film “Rocky” will also be a hit on Broadway.
Producers said Sunday they plan to get “Rocky” up and punching at the Winter Garden by February following a successful debut in Hamburg last fall.
The musical stays close to the film, which charted the rise and romance of amateur boxer and debt collector Rocky Balboa, played in Germany by Drew Sarich. No casting has been decided for New York.
Soooo… we’ll look forward to that. RockyBroadway.com
