Channing Tatum is Bringing A 'Magic Mike' Live Show to Vegas
Start packing your dollar bills, ladies, because Channing Tatum just announced that he is turning his successful male stripper movies Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL into a Vegas show, which will undoubtedly become the go-to choice for anyone planning a bachelorette party.
Being a generous man, Tatum made the announcement via a video featuring male entertainers shirtless alternating between doing household chores and playing with puppies (watch it here: https://youtu.be/QWvAAWjRWBs). The actor, whose life inspired Steven Soderbergh’s original film about a carpenter turned male entertainer, won’t be starring in the show, but he might make an appearance. "If I'm ever in shape enough to do that again, I'll absolutely go out and have a fun night or two," he told Cosmopolitan.
Tatum will direct the show, though, and it will be choreographed by Alison Faulk and Teresa Espinosa, who worked on both movies. While the show will be for guests 18 and older, Tatum wants the show to be fun and not creepy or uncomfortable for the audience. “We want to create a place for women that is their gentlemen’s club, their Playboy club,” he said in an interview with Cosmopolitan. “It shouldn’t be sleazy. [You shouldn’t feel] nervous to go there because you feel unsafe; we want to create the polar opposite of that.”
“Magic Mike has been a special and very personal project for me, and this show is a natural extension of that,” Tatum shared in a Facebook Live video. “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.”
The show is expected to open for previews in March 2017 at its home base of Vegas’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Start planning your ladies-only weekends and bachelorette parties now.
