Rocky Balboa Headed To The Great White Way????

You can't deny the success of Sylvestor Stallone's Rocky. Do you think Mr. Balboa will be able to score a "TKO" with a Broadway Musical version of the epic film? I'm not sure how the film will translate to The Great White Way, but who knows?

Stallone, who not only starred in the original film but also wrote it, approached Thomas Meehan and Barbara Darwall about adapting the film for a Broadway Musical. Meehan has been behind hits such as Hairspray, The Producers, and Annie. Tony Award winning composers, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, of Rag Time fame will be writing the score. We'll have to wait and see about this one.

Personally, my favorite Stallone film would be Rinestone! After all, I'm so Nashville.
