Re: “The Rocky Balboa Picture Show

The concept is great but the execution was not. We may have seen this on a bad night or with understudies going on, but the singing from the leads was not up to par with other musicals happening around town and the acting was too cheap for my taste. I get that they call themselves "corn" but it would have been nice if they had attempted to take the source materials a little more seriously by bringing some truth to their acting. I give it 2 stars over 1 because you could tell the performers were having fun and the audience around my small group was enjoying themselves, but we kept wondering if it was friends of the performers being overly supportive, and the script could be good with some revisions. Some of the jokes went over my head. Over all as I watched it, I found myself wish they would just drop the Rocky stuff and do the real Rocky Horror. I know that's not the point nor their intentions, but spoofing a spoof got tiresome.
