Broadway’s newest musical Rocky features a favorite movie cult character, Rocky Balboa. New cast members were announced this week in preparation for the February 11, 2014, start of the previews at the Winter Garden Theatre. The Broadway musical officially opens March 13, 2014.
Andy Karl, theater veteran known for musicals like Legally Blonde, Jersey Boys and Saturday Night Fever, stars in the title role of the “Italian Stallion”. Margo Seibert makes her Broadway debut in the role of Rocky’s love interest, Adrian. Newest cast members include Dakin Matthews (Rocky’s trainer, Mickey), Terence Archie (Rocky’s opponent, Apollo Creed) and Danny Mastrogiorgio (Adrian’s brother, Paulie).
The musical is largely based on a book co-written by Sylvester Stallone and Thomas Meehan. The book centers on “small-time Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa (Karl), who gets the chance to fight heavyweight champ Apollo Creed”.
