Further proof that the man upstairs may very well be a woman: “Magic Mike” is headed to Broadway!!!!!! (*Pauses for hyperventilating to subside*)
…OK!? So it seems “Magic Mike” screenwriter Reid Carolin let slip to USA Today at the film’s L.A. premiere that producers are adapting the tale for the Great White Way. “We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story,” he said, “more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story.”
Now, if you’ve ever popped onto Hollywood Crush for more than 3 seconds, you likely already (and rightfully) guessed that we’re more than a little enthused about this idea. Though to be honest, we’re not sure how a stage adaptation will differ all that much from an actual strip show, but we’re not ones to quibble!
And just in case you don’t know the beefy backstory to this babefest, the plot is loosely based on star Channing Tatum’s experience as a male stripper during his teens. The film, which opens Friday, co-stars a host of taut torsos, including those belonging to Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey.
So here’s the big question ladies: Would you pony up a fistful of dollars to see “Magic Mike: The Musical”? (Especially if it didn’t star Channing “My Abs Could Julienne Carrots” Tatum?) Vote in our poll below!
