Germany - After taking Las Vegas and London by storm, Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike Live will now move on to Berlin. Inspired by the hit Magic Mike film franchise, the latest production will open at the newly remodelled Club Theatre at Potsdamer Platz in November this year.
Having supported the London show since its opening last year, full service technical production company Hawthorn has been chosen to supply lighting equipment to the new Berlin production.
Conceived and co-directed by Tatum, Magic Mike Live is a large-scale, live production show featuring a group of extraordinary artists who perform an immersive 360-degree dance and acrobatic spectacular.
With a rig almost double the size of the West End production, 500 fixtures to be precise, Hawthorn is supplying lighting equipment to the specification of theatre lighting designer Philip Gladwell. This includes 68 Robe Spiiders, 86 Martin Rush PAR Zoom 2s, 62 GLP X4 Bar 10s and 28 Martin MAC Encore Performance CLDs.
As with the Vegas and London productions, audiences of Magic Mike Live Berlin can expect a lighting design more akin to a music video than a traditional theatre production. Packed with visuals and effects, the punchy rig also features Robe Mega Pointe, Super Spikie and LEDbeam 150 fixtures. The impressive set up will all be controlled using two Gio @5 consoles.
“We are really pleased that Hawthorn is looking after all of our lighting needs for the Berlin production of Magic Mike Live after they did such a great job for us in London,” says Gladwell. “I know we will be really well supported by their team.”
Mark Burnett, business development manager at Hawthorn, says: “We’re very excited to be working with the Magic Mike Live team once again to support the show as it opens in Berlin. It’s always a pleasure to work with Phil and his team and having supported the London production, it’s an honour to be chosen once again to supply lighting equipment in Berlin. We can’t wait to see our kit in action when the show opens in November.”
