No not “Rocky Horror” rather Rocky.
Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, a Tony Award-winning songwriting team (“Ragtime”), who along with book writer Thomas Meehan are deep into a stage musical adaptation of the boxing-cum-romantic drama “Rocky,” the winner of the 1976 Academy Award for best picture.
The creators and producers, which include “Rocky” star and screenwriter Sylvester Stallone, held a private reading of the work in New York in April, according to Mr. Meehan and a member of the producing team, Barbara Darwall. In interviews on Wednesday, they described the reading as creatively successful and said work was continuing toward the goal of mounting the musical in Germany in the fall of 2012 — and then, they hope, bringing “Rocky” to Broadway in the spring of 2013.
Ok then. While another movie adaptation is the last thing Broadway needs (especially this movie), Ahrens and Flaherty with Thomas Meehan is promising.
