Magic Mike Comes to Broadway
Stigma-free lap dances for all!

Rumours of a potential Broadway version of last years surprise-hit comedic drama Magic Mike have been floating around since the release of the film itself last June. The screenwriter behind the original story, Reid Carolin, envisioned a stage show “where women can scream at the dancers and throw money,” and Channing Tatum even suggested he might consider reprising his lead role.

Sadly, it came to light this week that women won’t get a chance to tuck their George Washingtons into Tatum’s G-string afterall–the star doesn’t think he has the singing chops to cut it on stage–but they can rest assured that they “definitely might get a lap dance” from whomever is ultimately cast, revealed Producer Gregory Jacobs, touting the show’s planned interactive aspect.

While Jacobs only gave away a few hints about the musical, including that “there’s bound to be a great song about how to pick out a thong” he assures us that more information about the upcoming show will be available soon (phew!)

While women can look forward to their chance to oogle oiled up men under the auspices of an evening at the theatre, this isn’t the first time male strippers have taken the stage in a musical production reports the International Business Times. 2000′s stage adaptation of The Full Monty, about steel workers turned exotic dancers had a successful 2-year run on Broadway.
