From the Academy Award® winner for Best Picture, Rocky has entered the ring again in this musical adaptation. Rocky is a hard-hitting yet tender musical with music and lyrics by Tony® winners and Academy Award® nominees Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and a book by multiple Tony winner Thomas Meehan, adapted from the acclaimed Oscar®-nominated screenplay by Sylvester Stallone.
Rocky Balboa is a small-time Philadelphia boxer who is chosen to take on the reigning world heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed, when the undefeated fighter's scheduled opponent is injured. As he diligently trains for the fight, Rocky begins a relationship with Adrian, a wallflower who is tired of being pushed around by her brother. As their love grows, Rocky and Adrian each find their inner strength and bring out the best in each other.
With equal parts grit and heart, Rocky is about the triumph of spirit, strength, and love.
