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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAPkNSIHMLw
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.
