Video: Sylvester Stallone Previews The Rocky Broadway Musical

The musical version of Rocky is headed to Broadway in early 2014. Sylvester Stallone appears in the video pitch for the show along with some bits of scenes – and songs.

Yep, that’s Rocky: The Musical. And I bet you anything this gets made into a feature film within the next three years, five on the outside.

Shame that the hook-line “Rocky, fight from the heeeeeart” is Rocky quoting the voice in his head and not just him singing in a Hulk-ish idiom.

The show had its first run in Hamburg. This video shows more scenes – and more songs – from that production. I’ve quoted my favourite lyrics below.

My nose aint’ broken, It still looks nice

Don’t need no stitches, Don’t need no ice

The rest of my body’s gonna need advice

But hey! Heeeey, heeeeeeey!

I guarantee you 100% that I’m going to see this show if it ever comes to the UK.

Thanks to Deadline for the Broadway video.
