It was a big hit in Germany, but now it’s coming to its native shores: Rocky, Das Musical. There are many, many questions one might have about such a project, but from where we stand, there’s only one that matters: How does Philadelphia come off?
From what we can gather from German YouTube clips and this revealing peek on Perez Hilton, the set design is generic enough to evoke Philly and its Rocky-movie interiors–although there’s a moment in the German trailer when a building topped by a giant “HAMBURG” sign kind of spoils the fun.
Here are some screenshots that give you a sense of what you’re in for, PLUS! Don’t forget the feature we did on the Philadelphia house used in Rocky II, which is still for sale.
