Endgame: “Rocky: The Musical” coming to Broadway

The problem here is simple. Just the thought of this is enough to instill a revisionist memory of Sly interrupting his training sessions with Burgess Meredith in the movie to start croaking out show tunes.

And that’s not a happy memory, my friends.

Of all the Stallone movies, Over The Top is begging to be a musical.

Or maybe Tango & Cash.

Gee, I thought they already made the Rocky musical. I laughed, I cried…

Speaking of End Times and poor taste, Ed Driscoll has the now-banned Mountain Dew ad up on his site:

The obvious choice was to make a musical of Rambo.

Could even have used the tune, Fight from the Heart.

I hope there is an “Eye of the Tiger” reprise that consists solely of the words “BumBum-bum-bumbum-bum-bumbum-bum-bum–m–m–m!

As long as “Copland: the musical” isn’t next.

The funny thing is that Bill Conti’s original scores for the rocky movies are amazing! Wonder if they’ll pinch those or not…

I hope it has the line “Yo, Adrian!” in it. The audience response to that would define the musical as comedy or drama.

Call me when “Cobra: The Musical” comes out. Failing that, how about “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot! The Musical”?

Chris of Rights on May 3, 2013 at 8:50 AM

So? That’s nothin’. Vegas now has Urinetown, the musical…..

SailorMark on May 3, 2013 at 10:36 AM

I can’t wait for the song entitled, “Yo Adrian”.

I’ll always have a soft spot for the first 2 Rocky flicks.

Is the dude who stars in It’s a Brad, Brad World gonna be Rocky?

When does Bullwinkle get his musical?
