Sylvester Stallone - Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Musical Was In The Works For 14 Years
The action man, who created and starred in the classic boxing film franchise, teamed up with champion boxing brothers Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko to bring his classic 1976 film to the theatre audiences.
The production debuted in Hamburg, Germany last year (Nov12) and after winning favourable reviews, it is now set to transfer to New York's Winter Garden Theatre for previews in February (14).
Stallone admits the Broadway opening has been a long time coming after struggling to take the project to the Great White Way for over a decade.
He says, "Finally, Rocky sings and punches his way into your heart! This is something that we've worked on... for 14 years to get this going and it was just very, very hard on Broadway... It's gonna be amazing."
Rocky the musical is set for opening in March (14).
