The story Sylvester Stallone created on film in 1976 needs hardly any introduction. The Academy Award–winning Rocky is about an underdog’s unlikely shot at boxing greatness, his bashful romance, and, most importantly, his quest to reach the top of the world’s biggest staircase. Drawing on the universal emotional appeal of the Italian Stallion’s rise, Stallone has joined forces with writer and three-time Tony-winner Thomas Meehan (The Producers, Annie), composer and lyricist Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Tony-winners for Ragtime), and an A-list cast to put the story on stage and tuck some Tony nominations under his hat.
Throughout Rocky Broadway, the action is bracingly visceral. Director Alex Timbers evokes a real title bout in the adrenaline-laced final fight, bringing the ring out into the audience and surrounding Rocky and Apollo Creed—who holds the titles of world heavyweight champion and world’s coolest name—on all sides. A full-contact fight ensues, with special-effects makeup, slow motion, live video, and other acts of technical wizardry all hiding the hard work of stagecraft in plain sight.
The fight is what gives the play its muscle, but Rocky’s courtship of shy Adrian supplies its heart. According to Variety, the “graceful” Tony-nominee Andy Karl sensitively “reveals the tough guy’s tender core” while Margo Seibert draws on a “sweet voice and guileless manner.” The combination of love, struggle, and poetic violence sends audiences—as Time Out New York put it—“staggering into the night punch-drunk, love-struck, and begging for more.“
