Rocky the Musical Another Win for Sylvester Stallone
It appears to be a case of history repeating itself, Rocky the musical has proved to be another win for Sylvester Stallone. The star made cinematic history and back in 1976 with his self-penned film with himself in the starring role of the broken down boxer who defies odds to emerge victorious from his bout with boxer Apollo Creed. The soundtrack, with its almost iconic Eye of the Tiger theme song and the images of Rocky Balboa training by punching sides of beef and running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the song Gonna Fly Now almost guaranteed the film’s success. Now the film has made its transition not only to Broadway, but as a musical version of the movie that launched Sylvester Stallone’s career.
