Génèse du musical

Hamburg (2012)
Rocky the Musical received its world premiere on 18 November 2012, at the Operettenhaus, Hamburg. The production opened to positive reviews and title casting included Drew Sarich as Rocky Balboa, Wietske van Tongeren playing Adrian Pennino and Terence Archie playing Apollo Creed. Having been written in English, the show was translated into German for its world premiere.

Broadway (2014)
On 28 April 2013, it was announced the show would transfer to Broadway in February 2014. On 26 August, it was announced that the show would open on 13 March 2014, at the Winter Garden Theatre, with previews commencing on 11 February 2014. The first preview was cancelled as a result of delayed technical rehearsals, due to power problems in the area. Following a scheduled rehearsal day previews commenced on 13 February. Tickets went on sale on 8 September 2013, with title casting announced shortly after, with Andy Karl playing Rocky, Margo Seibert playing Adrian and Terence Archie transferring from the Hamburg production, to reprise his role as Apollo Creed. Rehearsals for the production began on 18 December 2013, nearly two months prior to opening. The cast performed as part of the ceremony for the 68th Tony Awards in June 2014. It was announced on 15 July 2014, that the show would close on 17 August 2014, after a run of 28 previews and 188 performances.

Scrapped Korean production
The Korean production, first announced on early 2016, was scheduled to open on October 29. However, after low ticket sales and difficulties in the production team, the production was cancelled the day before the premiere. The announcement was heavily condemed, especially by the actors who were merely announced the same day through phone calls.
