It all started in Las Vegas, took London by storm and is about to change everything in Berlin. Now, Australia… it’s our turn. Welcome to the world of Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike Live.
Conceived and co-directed by Channing Tatum, Magic Mike Live is a thrilling, sexy, live dance and acrobatic spectacular based on the hit movies Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. Magic Mike Live will begin its strictly limited run in a brand new, bespoke venue at Birrarung Marr in Melbourne on 26 May before visiting Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Equal parts empowering and exhilarating, Magic Mike Live is one of the most unique, immersive live-entertainment experiences in the world.
“The movies did so amazingly here, we knew we had to figure out how to raise our game to do something this audience would love,” said creator and director Channing Tatum. “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.”
Channing is referring not only to the show, which will pull together all the best aspects of the other three productions around the world, but also to the one-of-a-kind venue that the Magic Mike Live team has dreamt up for Australia. In cooperation with Het Spiegelpaleis in Belgium, the production has created the world’s largest Spiegeltent, named The Arcadia. Named after the mythical utopia, the Arcadia is a beautiful, two story, fully-customized, 600-seat venue where every seat, every finish, every detail has been meticulously curated by Channing and the Magic Mike Live creative team especially for the women of Australia.
“There’s really nothing else like it in the world,” said Alison Faulk. “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 three-story glass lobby, beautiful custom bars, a mini food hall, an indoor/outdoor lounge area and a special photo gallery curated by Channing, the venue becomes a character in this unparalleled evening of sultry entertainment. 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.
