Rocky tells "the rags-to-riches American Dream story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but good-hearted debt collector for a loan shark in Philadelphia. Balboa is also a club fighter who gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship when the scheduled contender breaks his hand." The original Rocky film sparked five sequels.
The musical adaptation held a reading last year prior to a planned Broadway run; the show is produced by Stage Entertainment, which also produced the German productions of TARZAN, THE LION KING and SISTER ACT.
