Magic Mike the Musical Coming to Boston This Year
Boston, MA - Channing Tatum proudly announced Magic Mike: The Musical's debut in Boston, Massachusetts with the message, "This. Is. Happening. Get ready for Magic Mike… THE BROADWAY MUSICAL," posted on his Instagram.
The original 2012 movie known as Magic Mike was directed by Steven Soderbergh. The main stars included Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Romer, Matthew McConaughey, and Adam Rodriguez. The plotline was centered on the character known as Mike Lane, a man struggling to pay bills. Eventually, Mike took a job ‘dancing’ at a night club. The character ended up falling in love with the job and developing a passion for it.
This time around, many members of the original team and follow-up team will be involved in the production of Magic Mike the Musical. For instance, both Soderbergh and Jacobs will have their place in the future Broadway production, which seems fitting as Soderbergh directed the original Magic Mike and Jacobs directed the sequel. To add, Wechsler will be involved in the musical, as he produced both Magic Mike movies and Carolin will be involved, as she was the writer of both the movies.
Magic Mike the Musical will premiere at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre later this year before hitting Broadway. Preview performances will be showcased on Saturday, November 30, 2019, with actual shows starting on Sunday, December 15, 2019, and ending on January 5, 2019.
Official casting has yet to be announced.
The producers of the show include Tatum, Soderbergh, Jacobs, Wechsler, Carolin, and Kiernan. The director will be Trip Cullman.
Tatum seemed to be shocked that the show will be going into actual live production, as seven years ago he didn’t think the movie would turn out so well. According to him, this is proof that God really does love strippers.
This storyline will be a little bit different from the original, as it will focus more on Channing Tatum’s life. You’ll learn how Mike became Magic Mike, how he got his stage name and an inside scoop on some of Channing’s stories as a male performer.
The showcasing will last for approximately five weeks at the Emerson Colonial Theatre. Tickets will start at $49 and are available to be purchased via the theatre’s website or by a phone call to the theater’s box office.
