Broadway's MAGIC MIKE Creative Team Revealed - Tom Kitt, Brian Yorkey and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa! reports that MAGIC MIKE, THE MUSICAL has revealed its creative team. NEXT TO NORMAL's Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey will write the songs, with SPIDER-MAN's Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa crafting the book, which is based on the Steven Soderbergh-helmed film starring Channing Tatum.

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Reid Carolin, screenwriter for the film, is currently working on a 'spin-off' of the movie, which he plans to bring to Broadway as a new musical. "We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."

The show will reportedly be produced by Tatum alongside Carolin under the banner of their Production Company, Iron Horse Entertainment, alongside the film's director Steven Soderbergh, Gregory Jacobs, and Nick Wechsler.

Kitt and Yorkey are also the composing team behind the upcoming musical IF/THEN starring Idina Menzel. Aguirre-Sacasa's other credits include AMERICAN PSYCHO with Duncan Sheik, set to debut in London this year.

Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE opened in theaters on June 29th, 2012. The drama stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello and centers on a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family. He meets Magic Mike (Tatum), who seems like the perfect role model- he's got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. He also happens to be a male stripper.
