Producers of the Broadway-bound "Magic Mike The Musical" announced today that they are accepting audition videos for a diverse cast of leading men in the show which premieres at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre this fall — and requires a unique set of talents!

The show's director Trip Cullman says, "When Channing Tatum and his co-stars first appeared on the screen, it was unlike anything anyone had ever seen — and we are looking for actors who can surprise and dazzle us in that same unprecedented way. We are especially open to men of any race, ethnicity or creed as long as they are that elusive unicorn who can act, dance and sing brilliantly. So, that should be easy!"

Candidates must be true triple threats as the show requires phenomenal actors, dancers and singers. Candidates must be men between the ages of 18-30 and in excellent physical shape. Any entrants who meet the artist needs of the production may be contacted for an in-person call back in New York City.

Those interested in being considered for the production should send an email by March 17 to casting@magicmikebroadway.com. Please include the following:

· A self-taped video audition via an unlisted YouTube link or Vimeo that includes

· A brief pop/rock song not longer than 1 minute in length that shows off your range (with piano accompaniment)

Set before the hit movies "Magic Mike" and "Magic Mike XXL," this original stage production tells the story of college-student-turned-male-entertainer Mike Lane. Struggling to make ends meet, Mike takes a job dancing at an exclusive night club...and winds up loving every minute of it. But as he scrambles to hide his alter ego from his dad and girlfriend, he finds himself needing to make some difficult choices. Can Mike follow his dreams without losing more than his clothes?

Nina Essman and Marcia Goldberg are the Executive Producers of "Magic Mike The Musical." The production's general manager is 321 Theatrical Management.

The "Magic Mike" phenomenon began with the release of the movie, "Magic Mike," directed by Stephen Soderbergh, which opened to critical and popular success in 2012. A second film, "Magic Mike XXL," directed by Gregory Jacobs, was released in 2015; the two films combined made almost $300 million.
