In news that’s sure to make women everywhere simultaneously orgasm, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that there are mysterious forces working behind the scenes to turn Magic Mike into a Broadway show. Think men in thongs. Now think about men in thongs in stage make-up.
Reid Carolin, the man who wrote the movie script says he’s working on the spin-off right now.
“We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story,” he says. “I’m almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it’s the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show.”
Yeah, I know. I can also barely contain my excitement for what’s sure to be the go-to show for bachelorette parties looking to live the Sex and the City lifestyle. Even though the movie doesn’t come out until Friday, everyone’s already sure that a movie starring a topless Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer will be a hit sensation.
Vaginas across the country confirm what I just typed. This will be The Help of summer 2012. Except with less white guilt. And more tears. Because it’s not everyday you get to stare at Matt Bomer gyrating for hours. Unless you know something about the White Collar DVD set that I don’t know.
And that’s why this will be the best Broadway musical to ever be written, produced and performed. It combines everything ladyfolk like. Music. Dancing. Thongs. Unattainable men shoving their unattainableness in our face.
While I don’t want to predict all the song titles now, I eagerly await the opening lines to “Magic Mike: If You’re Sitting In The First 6 Rows, You Can See The Outline Of His Penis.”
