Channing Tatum starred in and produced the original Magic Mike, which hit theaters in 2012, and last year's sequel, Magic Mike XXL, both of which are based on his experiences as a young exotic dancer. Here's what the actor-producer had to say about the live show in a statement.
"Magic Mike has been a special and very personal project for me, and this show is a natural extension of that. So while I won't be on stage as Mike, Magic Mike Live Las Vegas is my vision and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time in Las Vegas creating something that will give women what they really want."
Conceived and directed by Tatum and produced by Free Association, in association with, United Talent Agency, BASE Entertainment and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Magic Mike Live Las Vegas promises to take the male revue, a staple of Las Vegas bachelorette parties and girlfriend getaways, to new heights. The experience starts as you enter Club Domina, a real life version of the club at the foundation of Magic Mike XXL, where men cater to women's desires. The fully re-envisioned cabaret nightclub space will be unlike any other in Las Vegas with three elaborately designed bars, an integrated stage and seating for 450 guests. Expressly created to capture the magnetism of a film franchise that has grossed nearly $300 million, this new venue and its immersive production will be one of the most unique entertainment experiences in Las Vegas.
In a show that happens in front of, behind, above and all around the audience, a dozen of the hottest and most talented men in the country will bring Mike and his crew to life through sexy and daring themed dance and strip routines, each punctuated by one-of-a-kind acts from a wildly diverse cast of performers. Like Mike, these guys are about much more than a strip. Of course there will be dancing, but Magic Mike Live Las Vegas is about giving women an immersive, first-class entertainment experience.
In addition to direction and creative leadership from Tatum, film franchise choreographer Alison Faulk will once again reprise her role, creating the stage show's choreography. Leading Las Vegas producer BASE Entertainment and casino innovator Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will bring a wide breadth and depth of Las Vegas entertainment experience and expertise to the show. Magic Mike Live Las Vegas has also struck a content partnership with the leading digital media property Cosmopolitan.com to create original video series and content designed to drive excitement and engagement around the show.
Magic Mike Live Las Vegas is being created for guests 18 and older. The show currently plans to begin preview performances at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas in March 2017, with performances Wednesdays through Sundays at 7:30pm and 10:30pm. Casting, pricing and VIP ticketing information will be announced shortly. Visit MagicMikeLiveLasVegas.com for more information.
