By now you’ve seen the films (probably more than a few times), but the live show is an evening you have to experience for yourself. Based on the hit movies Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL and conceived and co-directed by Channing Tatum himself, Magic Mike Live has been described as nothing less than a thrilling, sexy, live dance and acrobatic spectacular.
It will make its first Australian stop in Sydney, touching down at a brand new, bespoke venue at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park from Thursday 17 December, before landing in Melbourne’s Birrarung Marr from Tuesday 8 June 2021. Take it from us, it is one of the most unique, immersive live-entertainment experiences in the world.
“From the first moment we thought up Magic Mike Live, we always dreamt of bringing it to Australia,” creator and director Channing Tatum says.
“The movies did so amazingly here, we knew we had to figure out how to raise our game. It took a few years for it to all come together but…man…did it come together. We have something planned for Australia that is going to blow your minds.”
While the Australian production will pull together all the best parts of the Las Vegas, London, Berlin productions, the one-of-a-kind venue dreamt up by the team is sure to make Australia’s’s production extra special.
In cooperation with Het Spiegelpaleis in Belgium, the productionwill be housed in the world’s largest Spiegeltent – a two-story fully-customized, 600-seat venue where every single detail has been meticulously curated by Channing and the creative team, especially for Australia fans.
Magic Mike film choreographer Alison Faulk (whose other credits include working with Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Missy Elliott, and P!NK to name a few) is not only choreographer but also co-director of the production – so you know you’re in good hands.
“There’s really nothing else like it in the world,” Faulk says. “It is the most beautiful, special place for people to experience the show and has allowed us to do things with our performers that just haven’t been possible anywhere else in the world.”
With a cast of 20 world-class performers and 15 of the most talented male dancers in the world, Magic Mike Live unfolds in front of, behind and above the audience, enveloping patrons in an unforgettable, 360-degree, whirlwind of dance, comedy and extraordinary acrobatics.
