By Webmaster on February 16, 2014 / 1 min read

Sylvester Stallone surprised fans by climbing into the ring after the launch of Rocky on Broadway on February 13 at New York’s Winter Garden Theatre.

Flanked by stars Andy Karl and Margo Seibert, who play the Italian Stallion and Adrian respectively, Sly gave a warm speech before saying goodnight to the New York crowd.

The first Rocky movie, which was released in 1978, sees a small-time boxer picked for a title fight by the heavyweight champion of the world.

Rocky on Broadway opens to the public on March 13, 2014. The show features 20 original songs, with additional music taken from the original film series including ‘Eye of the Tiger’ and ‘Gonna Fly Now’.

    Have all the Rocky movies. Love them all. Looks like you are doing a great job bringing the characters to life on Broadway. Wish I could see it. It would be a dream come true. I know there are lots of Rocky fans out there, but no matter how many times I watch it, I have to cheer and root for him. The movie is about hope and second chances. I know you will bring all that to life with the spectacular that is Broadway!
