(KGTV) - It’s the show that is sure to heat things up on Broadway: “Magic Mike The Musical” is set to hit the stage later this year.

The musical is described as a prequel to the hit films “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XXL” that “tells the story of how the world’s favorite stripping sensation first found his mojo.”

The official synopsis: "Set before the hit movies Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL, this original stage production tells the story of college-student-turned-male-entertainer Mike Lane. Struggling to make ends meet, Mike takes a job dancing at an exclusive night club… and winds up loving every minute of it. But as he scrambles to hide his alter ego from his dad and girlfriend, he finds himself needing to make some difficult choices. Can Mike follow his dreams without losing more than his clothes?"

The films’ cast included Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey, but none of the actors are expected to appear in the stage version.

However, Tatum and “Magic Mike” director Steven Soderbergh are listed as producers of the musical.

The production will make its pre-Broadway debut at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre, with shows running from Nov. 30, 2019-Jan. 5, 2020. After its Boston run, it is expected to head to Broadway in New York.

Tickets for the Boston shows are available now.
