‘Magic Mike’ Heading to Broadway
According to Deadline Hollywood, “Magic Mike: The Musical” is heading to Broadway. Per the website, producers are actively working to turn the Channing Tatum blockbuster film about male strippers in Florida into a musical with Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey set to write songs, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa signed to write the book for the Broadway version. The film, released in 2012, was directed by Steven Soderbergh, who along with Tatum, Reid Carolin, Gregory Jacobs, and Nick Wechsler serve as producers on the musical.
In addition to Tatum, “Magic Mike” starred “Guiding Light” alum Matt Bomer, “True Blood’s” Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Adam Rodriguez and Matthew McConaughey. “All My Children” alum Denise Vasi and Camryn Grimes, who recently returned to CBS’ “The Young and the Restless,” also appeared in the film.
