Set before the hit movies "Magic Mike" and "Magic Mike XXL," this original stage production tells the story of college-student-turned-male-entertainer Mike Lane. Struggling to make ends meet, Mike takes a job dancing at an exclusive night club...and winds up loving every minute of it. But as he scrambles to hide his alter ego from his dad and girlfriend, he finds himself needing to make some difficult choices. Can Mike follow his dreams without losing more than his clothes?
The "Magic Mike" phenomenon began with the release of the movie, Magic Mike, directed by Stephen Soderbergh, which opened to critical and popular success in 2012. A second film, Magic Mike XXL, directed by Gregory Jacobs, was released in 2015; the two films combined made almost $300 million. Magic Mike Live launched in Las Vegas in 2017 and opened in London last year; combined they have sold $36.5 million in tickets. The total number of ticket sales in Magic Mike universe is currently over $335 million. Magic Mike The Musical is an entirely new theatre production that tells the story leading up to the first Magic Mike movie.
