Channing Tatum's Magic Mike Live to open in London in November.

As showcased on the Britain's Got Talent final last night, Channing Tatum is opening a brand new production of Magic Mike Live at the Hippodrome Casino in London's Leicester Square from 28th November (following previews from 10th November).  It is currently booking until 28th April 2019. This follows  its Las Vegas opening a year ago.

Conceived and co-directed by Tatum, Magic Mike Live is a large-scale, live production show based on the hit films Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. The Theatre at the Hippodrome Casino is being transformed into an intimate, 325-seater space for the show which takes place Magic Mike's mythical Club Domina with a diverse group of artists from all over the world  performing  360ยบ sexy dance routines  and acrobatics mixed with speciality  acts.   You can see the trailer for Magic Mike Live here.

Simon Thomas, CEO of The Hippodrome Casino said:"In so many ways Magic Mike Live is a perfect fit for us,"  "Since 1900, the venue has been delighting, shocking and reinventing the way London and its visitors are entertained. This is yet another example of how the Hippodrome resolutely refuses to stand still. As we prepare to close our theatre for a three-month, multi-million pound refurbishment, my senior management and our 730 employees look forward to joining all of London in giving Channing Tatum, the incredibly talented performers and his world-class production team, the warmest welcome the capital can muster."

The show has been hailed as "the modern strip show we deserve" by USA Today and celebrated as "the show that has everything you could ever want" by Glamour UK.
