After opening in Germany last year, the musical Rocky has finally been given a shot on Broadway
. It is moving into the space formerly occupied by Mamma Mia which is moving to smaller quarters because everyone who has ever wanted to see that show has already seen it and now they are all just watching the movie version. I think that is what kills a lot of shows. They make some kind of movie version and then there is no need to go see the stage version again. Pretty sure that will happen when Wicked finally gets made into a movie. Anyway, apparently everyone in Germany loves Rocky as a musical and the songs are supposed to be great. I mean look at the song titles, how could they not be.
