Talk about the story of an underdog — Rocky is coming to Broadway, replacing the long-running Mamma Mia! at the Winter Garden Theater. After a successful run in Hamburg, the adaptation is backed by the classic 1976 film’s star, Sylvester Stallone, who will receive his first Broadway producing credit and brought to us by the people responsible for Peter and the Starcatcher, Annie, Ragtime, and The Producers .
