Channing Tatum wants to help quench the thirst for more “Magic Mike.”

In a Facebook video posted May 4, the actor announced the live show version of “Magic Mike” in Las Vegas.

MAGIC MIKE LIVE LAS VEGAS (yes, the official show name is in all caps) was conceived and directed by Tatum, who portrays the stripper “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XXL” is named for.

Tatum hasn’t said no to the possibility of him reprising his role onstage.

“Look, if I’m ever in shape enough to actually do the show again, I will absolutely step onstage, just because it’s fun,” he said in his Facebook video. But then he gave a big hint: “I’m sure there will be a ton of crazy cameos.”

According to a press release about the show, “Like Mike, these guys are about much more than a strip. Of course there will be dancing, but MAGIC MIKE LIVE LAS VEGAS is about giving women an immersive, first-class entertainment experience.”

The show is also looking for potential audience members’ tastes to keep in mind when putting the show together. (Warning: the quiz seems fun and hilarious at first, but after the 7th question or so it gets pretty old.) A few snapshots of what MAGIC MIKE LIVE wants to know about you:

This quiz is way too long unless you are truly invested in getting your input to the show producers.

Preview performances will likely open March 2017. And (naturally) the show will be limited to guests 18 years of age or older.
