Magic Mike Live opens to rave reviews

Plus here's what you need to know about dates, tickets and the cast.

One year after its acclaimed launch at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Channing Tatum has brought a new production of Magic Mike Live to the Hippodrome Casino in London’s Leicester Square.

Conceived and co-directed by Tatum – the original star of the iconic Magic Mike film and its sequel Magic Mike XXL – Magic Mike Live is large-scale live production that brings the passion of the original movies to life before your very eyes.

Watch the trailer for the unique show below:

 

The multi-national cast includes Samantha Baines, Jake Brewer, Harry Carter, Pip Hearse, Sophie Linder-Lee, Jack Manley, David Morgan, Ross Sands, Dean Stewart, Manny Tsakanika and Aaron Witter from the United Kingdom, Daniel Ralph from France, Antonio Donadio and Sebastián Melo Taveira from Italy, Maxwell Trengove from Australia and Brian Siregar from the USA.

Magic Magic Live has transformed the theatre at the Hippodrome into a magical, intimate, 325-seat performance space. From the bespoke entrance off Cranbourn Street, to the specially curated lounge and bar experience, to the cast of world-class performers, Magic Mike Live is a complete evening of unparalleled entertainment for those aged 18 and up.

Guests enter Magic Mike’s mythical club and marvel as a group of extraordinary artists perform a 360-degree dance and acrobatic spectacular in front of, behind, and above them. Sexy dance routines are intertwined with one-of-a-kind acts presented by a diverse cast of performers from around the world.

Reviews have called the production “red hot magic” (Metro), “a feverish spectacle” (Evening Standard), and “a huge hit” (WhatsOnStage). “The sexiest, steamiest show in town,” says The Sun, adding that “these lads will make your dreams come true”.

“The audience seem nothing less than ecstatic throughout”, notes The Independent, with The Stage declaring it “a spectacle hot enough to leave the streaming crowd momentarily breathless”.

Magic Mike Live in London is co-directed by Channing Tatum and Alison Faulk and choreographed by Alison Faulk, Teresa Espinoza and Luke Broadlick.

It cleverly straddles the line between sultry and acrobatic, pairing impressive dance with a healthy dose of sex appeal.

The show is now open at The Theatre at the Hippodrome.

Please note: Magic Mike Live guests must be at least 18 years to attend – appropriate photo ID will be requested on arrival at the venue.
