Girls' Night Out

Ladies, tonight it’s all about you. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, getting hitched, getting over a divorce or just plain and simple need a serious girls’ night out, look no further than Magic Mike Live. Inspired by the hit films starring Channing Tatum, this is not your average male revue. Lyndsay Hailey, the show’s emcee, describes the Las Vegas production as “sexy, empowering and motivational.”



Hailey, an alumna of Second City National Touring Company in Chicago with more than 10 years of comedy experience under her belt, co-wrote Magic Mike Live with Tatum. “It’s been amazing (working with him). He lets everybody freely express themselves and play at the top of their intelligence,” she says. “What sets it apart from other shows is the female voice, and that was super important to Channing. It’s really about what women find sexy. The main thing he told me: ‘I want you to put you into the show.’” And indeed she did.

Inside the fictional Club Domina, Hailey calls upon her imaginary friend Unicorn (not the kind you had as a little girl but an adult one, with voiceover help from Tatum). Whatever Hailey wants, Hailey gets. Tired of seeing men dressed as firefighters and police officers? No problem. Opt for a man in jeans with a bare chest, and … poof! Just like that, not one but 13 dancers (of all different flavors) magically appear, ready to live out every woman’s fantasies. “Every night when I’m standing onstage and they turn to me and surf the crowd, I lose my breath every time,” she chuckles. “I think it’s because I’m so excited about what’s about to happen. I love that part. It feels so powerful to be a part of that.”

Magic Mike Live is full of many surprises. “Everything from the dance numbers to the writing and the selection of songs—there are so many females involved in this process,” Hailey says. “It’s mostly about what we actually want.” One lucky lady gets her feet rubbed by a dancer named (what else?) Mike; another gets seduced on top of the bar to 50 Cent’s hit song “Candy Shop.” Add in steamy lap dances, tantalizing stripteases, a wet-and-wild scene and one epic finale to bring everyone in the theater to their feet. –Las Vegas Magazine Staff
