Rocky and Adrian are set to give their regards to Broadway.
A stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning movie is scheduled to open on the Great White Way in February.
Sylvester Stallone, who has portrayed the titular boxer throughout the decades starting with the 1976 film, serves as a producer on the "Rocky" musical, which opened in Germany last fall.
"Ragtime's" Tony-winning duo, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, have composed the score, and Thomas Meehan (“Hairspray”; “Annie”) handled the book.
As Meehan told the New York Times in 2011 ahead of "Rocky's" German opening, the production itself has had "a long gestation period, but it’s come to be a work that we’re really proud of. There was some worry early on — could we really make a musical out of a boxing picture? Could you make Rocky sing and dance? But when we did the reading, people were very impressed."
"Rocky" is slated to play at the Winter Garden Theatre.
Good Article! I will to revisit everyday. Thank you

the show will do well.
the play will do well. the movies are not the greatest but he is a beloved character then every loves too watch.
what a performance....
It used to be that 'Rocky' was synonymous with masculinity....oh well, it was good while it lasted.
There's nothing quite like showering with a hot, sweaty boxer right after his winning match. Yowza!
i am so there!!!!!
I'm sure the gays will flock to see this musical. A musical based on a performance by a former Adult Film actor. Revolting, all of it.
Hey, Miss Prude, get over yourself and go read about something you're not so hateful about... or is that even possible with the likes of you?
The song "Gonna Fly Now" will feature heavily in the second act, and as the closing number. There will be a song called "Yo, Adrian." Apollo Creed will sing "Ain't Gonna Be No Rematch."
I pray everyone here is having a happy day. I've been playing in twitter some. It's ok. : )
