Well ladies and gentleman, here at Oluria, we like anything hot and sexy, so it just seems appropriate to start off “Travel & Pretty Clothes Magazine” with a true bare and naked (pun intended) review of “Magic Mike Live“, in Las Vegas!
For those of you living under a rock, Magic Mike is a movie starring Channing Tatum. (Did it just get hot it here? Seriously, I’m already sweating.) He plays a normal guy who eventually begins stripping for a good portion of the movie.
If you haven’t seen it, I give you permission RIGHT NOW…. STOP reading this and go put it on on Netflix. It is currently on there right now!
However, I will say, Magic Mike 2, is EVEN BETTER! If that’s even possible for a sequel to be better than the first? But yes, it is amazing. (If more stripping Tatum isn’t enough, the story line is pretty great too.)
And because it was so amazing, Vegas, the city of “That’s hot! Let’s do this!” decided to do just that… and they recreated Magic Mike into a live show!
So I am going to give you a completely unbiased (Yea right!) review of what I thought of the show.
Firstly, what do you wear to a show where all the men will be taking their clothes off in front of you? You have to look stunning right? Since you’ll be wearing clothes and they won’t be. Plus, it’s Las Vegas! Going out in Vegas is an event in itself!
So I went with classic. Little. Black. Dress. Yes please! And considering I am 5 feet tall, I had to liven the outfit up with some red stiletto heels. Did I nail the classic chic? (Looks hot, but doesn’t look like I am trying too hard?)
So. boom! I was officially ready for some Mike action!
The show is at the Hard Rock Casino and because of it’s obvious success, it had the theater where it plays at, named after it. The Magic Mike Theater.
The excitement bubbled! I mean, LOOK at the entrance!
When I began to walk down the dark yet glistening hallway on my decent downstairs, I had NO idea what to expect.
The darkness gave way to reveal a huge arena with sophistical decor and a square stage in the middle, which gave a perfect view from any seat in the house.
We walked over to our personal sofa and found bright pink Magic Mike dollar bills! As we sat down, the girls next to us warmed us that we better get in touch with our own bodies real quick because it gets very personal in here.
At that point, I could only assume that the dollars were pink due to blushing from where they are about to be stuck!
A quick selfie on our plush velvet sofa, a ridiculously HUGE glass of wine delivered right to me and the show was about to begin.
I won’t give away too many “spoiler details” of the show, but let’s just say that they found a way to bring humor and sexuality together so beautifully, I was beyond impressed with how the show started.
And I even heard that Channing himself had blessed the show with his presence and performance in it! Although he is not currently in the show now. Well kind of 😉 (If you’ve been to the show, you’ll understand that! Lol.)
As it proceeded… well, SH*T got real! And we lost a few things… His shorts, my dignity… But I am slightly OK with it. (Or possibly more than slightly)
As you watch the show, the men come from all angels and eventually encompass you, Mr. Sweaty, as he will forever me known in my book, gave me a pretty unforgettable lap-dance, to which I am eternally grateful. Mr. Sweaty, if you ever read this… Thank you for the incredible 20 seconds!
They then threw in some of my personal weaknesses, a man in a suit! But not just one man, OH NO… copious amounts of men in suits! Everywhere! On staircases, on pianos, on stage, on balconies, OH MY!
But why stop there… For every die hard “Notebook” fan, who has ever fantasized about love scenes in the pouring rain… Why not create one on stage.?.. Of course Magic Mike Live has got that, yup, just throw that in! Kick me while I am already down and SO turned on by all these sexy men! Lol.
And just to cap off every girl’s true deep down desires… A descent into a crowd, full of shirtless men, on a FREAKING UNICORN!
(Editor’s Note: This is far less cheesy than it sounds. It’s down right empowering!)
I’m OUT! *Mike drop*
I left there, never feeling so satisfied in my whole life (sorry ex boyfriends, you just compare to Magic Mike Live!)
I am sure you can deduce by now, that I was so tantalizingly impressed with this show. I have to see it at least 20 more time. No joke! It’s that good.
I have attached a link at the bottom of this post to where I personally got my tickets, if you want to get tickets to experience this for yourself. If you leave Vegas without seeing this, you will never forgive yourself.
Let me know how you liked it?!
