The production is set to open in March 2014 among much fanfare. If you’re looking for Rocky Tickets on Broadway, ScoreBig lets you save on every ticket, every day.
It’s a true underdog story like no other. Fighting literally for his life and food to put on the table, Rocky follows the amateur boxer of the same name as he claws his way from small time fights to the Heavyweight championship. There’s fights, knockouts, and a little bit of luck thanks to Rocky’s one and only, Adrian. Follow along as Rocky prepares for his epic, once in a lifetime bout with current heavyweight champion Apollo Creed.
Filling Sly’s shoes is a tough assignment, but Andy Karl does a masterful job as Rocky. The protagonist is a Broadway veteran, having roles in Wicked, Saturday Night Fever, Jersey Boys, Legally Blonde, and more. Rocky’s love interest, Adrian, is played by Broadway newcomer Margo Seibert, who gets her debut as the main female role. Danny Mastrogiorgio will undoubtedly get a ton of laughs in his portrayal of Paulie.
Rocky is now playing on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre, located at 1634 Broadway. The venue, which first opened up in 1911, has a max capacity of 1,526. Interestingly enough, this location first opened in 1896 to be home to the American Horse Exchange. After a renovation in 1911, horses were out and captivating Broadway productions were in.
