Magic Mike Live has been described as a ‘feverish spectacle’.
The formula for Magic Mike Live is simple: take a troupe of handsome, athletically gifted men, remove their shirts, and have ’em spin, flip, dance, and gyrate to some thumping beats and add an audience full of extremely thirsty men and women. Do that and you’ve got one hot and steamy night out that the public can’t seem to get enough of.
Having already toured and wowed audiences in Las Vegas, London and Berlin, Channing Tatum announced to the Australian public that the hottest production currently on tour would be hitting Australian shores this year. And despite the problems that have come up, the show is still on and the stage lights are shining bright at the world’s largest Spiegeltent, The Arcadia in Sydney’s Moore Park which was specifically designed and built for Australian audiences and has been configured to ensure the comfort and safety of all patrons across the two storeys.
Channing Tatum himself isn’t part of the spectacular but sixteen of his daring and ripped proteges are. They’re not only showing off their Adonis-like physiques but also performing some of the most exhilarating and blood-pumping dance moves any audience has ever seen.
Or never seen, as Tatum has spilt the beans that the Australian edition is a new version of the show and ”is more than (he) ever imagined it could be.” Does that mean more and more people being pulled up on stage? We don’t know but we do know that some of us certainly hope so.
In Sydney, Magic Mike Live debuted on 27 December and has had shows added to its run, which now ends in April.
For Melburnians, a June, 2021 debut is scheduled with more dates in July and August. The show is also planned to tour Brisbane and Perth; however, no dates have yet been set. You can sign up for the waiting list though to make sure you don’t miss out on exclusive presale tickets.
Consider yourself VIP?
A backstage ‘VIP’ pass ($49) can be added to any ticket purchase and will entitle the guest to a signature ‘Pretty In Pink’ cocktail in a souvenir glass; a signed program book delivered to your seat by a member of the cast; a merchandise pack that includes a customised MML ball cap, unicorn socks, a unicorn lapel pin and a VIP lanyard to take home.
When one of the guys drops by to deliver your signed program book, you are free to take socially distanced photos and enjoy some one-on-one time, which means you’ll need to arrive 45 minutes prior to the show to enjoy this VIP treatment.
