Sylvester Stallone made his Broadway debut with Rocky The Musical.
The musical has opened on Broadway with technical wizardry triumphing over “non-descript” music.
Rocky The Musical – based on Oscar-winning movie Rocky – is co-written by the film’s star Sylvester Stallone.
Set in 1975 Philadelphia, it follows an amateur boxer who gets a surprise shot at the heavyweight championship.
The final scene sees Rocky battle world champion Apollo Creed in the ring.
Andy Karl, in the role of Rocky, and Margo Seibert, as his love interest Adrian, also draw praise after the musical debut.
But ultimately, it is the show’s technical wizardry that triumphs.
