Magic Mike fans can rejoice as they’ll now be able to experience the action in the flesh — literally.
During a Facebook Live session yesterday, star Channing Tatum announced that Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will be hosting the first-ever Magic Mike Live.
The actor said the show, which is partnering with Cosmopolitan magazine, will be completely audience-driven.
“We want to change what male entertainment has been for years. For 40, 50 years, it hasn’t changed, and we want to make it better,” he said. “We got to do some different stuff and have some fun in different ways and make it more of a conversation instead of just men going up there and trying to tell you what you should think is sexy. We really want to hear from you.”
“It should be woman-empowering instead of just about the guys getting naked,” the Magic Mike XXL star continued.
As for Channing and his Magic Mike co-stars making an appearance in the show? The chances look good (really good). “If I’m ever in shape enough to actually do the show again, I will absolutely step on stage, just because it’s fun,” he said. “I’m sure there’ll be a lot of crazy cameos.”
Magic Mike Live will be directed by the 36-year-old actor along with Magic Mike choreographer Alison Faulk, and will debut next March.
