The Rocky Shock
A fabulous comedy-drag-boxing-musical extravaganza from The Wardrobe Theatre, makers of Reservoir Mogs and Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears
A guy like you in a city like this could be anything he wants!
This is America, the greatest city in the world!
It’s 1976; a world without men and women – only lovers, fighters, dancers and all-nighters and where the mean streets of Philadelphia are filled with campy song. When small-time boxer Rocky Featherboa is challenged to the fight of a lifetime, the Italian Stallion must risk it all and learn to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, dance like a rock’n’roll star and sing like a queen!
After the stunning successes of Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, Reservoir Mogs and Muppits Die Hard, The Wardrobe Theatre brings you another of its signature, darkly comic, adult only shows. A scary-sexy, knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt, The Rocky Shock is a show you won’t forget, however hard you try…
“If you are not shouting and clapping by the end of this two-hour hullabaloo, I’d be surprised.”
★★★★★ Stage Talk Magazine
“A smash hit must-see… Fantastically entertaining.”
★★★★ The Fix
“There are laughs aplenty, not the polite laughter of the theatre crowd but real genuine guffaws from an audience with a drink in hand and ready to have a good time.”
★★★★ The Reviews Hub
“The outright winner of the comedy heavyweight title… Take a ringside seat, and have a good roll round in the aisles of the Wardrobe Theatre, punchdrunk with glee.”
Running Time: 2 hours (with interval)
