The Saroyan Theatre isn’t the first venue that comes to mind as a place to see stripped-down men with gyrating hips and rock-hard abs.
But Magic Men Live reimagines the Chippendales-style male revue as a cabaret theater show more suited to the space.
The touring show, from Premier Gentlemen and choreographer Oscar Hernandez, will stop at the theater Thursday, Sept. 22. Tickets go on sale starting Friday at the box office, by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices are not yet available, but prices for the tour’s stop in Washington, D.C. are $25-$75.
Magic Men Live is billed as a “reimagined” approach to ladies’ night out. Obviously, there are men – enough to “appeal to a variety of tastes” – but also a dynamic production with interactive visuals, sound and lighting design. The show promises dancing, theatrics, comedy, some “audience participation and, of course, more than a little skin.”
Note, this is not the Channing Tatum-backed “Magic Mike Live.” That show, loosely based on the “Magic Mike” films, debuts in Las Vegas next year.
