He's Got The Eye Of The Tiger! First Look At Andy Karl In ROCKY
Legendary multi-Academy Award-winning big screen classic ROCKY is set to hit Broadway later this year in a new musical adaptation and an exciting preliminary peek at the title star, Andy Karl, in costume and in character is now available to view via a new social media post.
Director Alex Timbers shared a shot of himself alongside a noticeably buff, bloody and battered Andy Karl as Rocky earlier this week, featuring the title star grasping the championship trophy and donning the iconic belt as so famously seen in the films by creator and star Sylvester Stallone.
Of note, the new musical adaptation is based on the first film in the long-running series.
ROCKY is set to open on Broadway on March 13.
More information on ROCKY is available at the official site here.
The official synopsis of ROCKY is as follows: "Somewhere in downtown Philadelphia, a down-and-out fighter named Rocky Balboa struggles to stay on his feet. But when the chance of a lifetime comes along, he takes his best shot at becoming a champion... and his last shot at finding first love. The iconic underdog story ROCKY has inspired an innovative new stage production, brought to extraordinary life by a five-time Tony Award®-winning creative team, including director Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), songwriting team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime), and book writers Thomas Meehan (The Producers) and Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, the Oscar®-winning Best Picture). Both an adrenaline-infused spectacle and a surprising tale of blossoming romance between two lonely outsiders, ROCKY is a visceral and heart-stopping theatrical experience for everyone brave enough to follow their dream."
