The Drum


A 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! 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 their life, 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 success of Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, The Wardrobe Theatre brings you another of its signature, darkly comic, adult only shows – a loving, playful fusion of the boxing classic with the cross-dressing cult musical masterpiece. A scary-sexy, knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt, ROCKY SHOCK is a show you won’t forget, however hard you try…

★★★★ 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.
