“I couldn’t be more proud or more excited about this production and how my original story of Rocky Balboa has been brought to spectacular life onstage,” said Stallone, who penned the screenplay of the beloved 1976 feature that spawned four sequels.
“The story of Rocky was very much like my life at the time – starting out with nothing, having to fight for roles and recognition,” continued Stallone. “So I put those feelings into the body of a boxer and I had no idea there were so many millions of people that felt the same way. Alex Timbers and the entire creative team have not only honored that original impulse, but have made his story as exciting, heart-breaking, and inspiring as it was when Rocky first went the distance onscreen.”
Presented by Stage Entertainment USA and Stallone, the production received its world premiere last fall in Hamburg, Germany, where it opened to rave reviews and continues playing to packed houses.
The Dubai Police authorities have unveiled a Ferrari FF as the latest addition to their fleet of patrol vehicles.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari FF, which stands for “Ferrari Four”, because of its four seats and four-wheel drive, is a grand tourer which was unveiled by the Maranello based automaker on the 1st of March 2011 during the Geneva Motor Show.
The FF, which is powered by a 651-horsepower 6.3-liter V-12, accelerates to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 208 mph.
