It was inevitable for Rocky to be transferred to the stage. After all, what's more Broadway than Stallone? Ok, the film won a lot of awards and is one of the greatest boxing movies ever made...especially since I can't really picture Raging Bull as a musical.
Yes, a musical Rocky...
"Adrien! Adrien!" As an 11-o'clock number? Shiver.
And you have to think they'll work a Broadway version of "Eye of the Tiger" in there somewhere, despite it not appearing in the original movie.
Who, the producers must have sat there thinking, should we hire to write the score for the "Italian Stallion"?
I'd've loved to have been at the brainstorming session which led to this:
Yes, that's right. R. Kelly. Why do I think at least one of the producers has a child who watched Space Jam one too many times.
"Let's hire the Michael Jordan song guy!" He must have shouted out after the 16th latte.
"Didn't he get arrested for something?" The maintenance man might have volunteered.
"No, that's Michael Jackson." Latte-boy would have responded.
Rocky: The Musical.
Where Adrien is, apparently, going to be played by a 15 year old.
Just a thought.
