Magic Mike Live
This venue provided an intimate setting for the London staging of this highly successful Vegas show. With audience participation key, the theatre itself was themed with a combination of burnt wood paneling and rich, ornate fabric covered panels. With the audience sitting so close to the paneling, precision and attention to detail were key to delivering a convincing environment.
The 30+ fabric-covered panels came in four different designs. Each comprised a metal frame around an acrylic panel, covered with a specially printed stretch fabric and back-lit to create a series of lightboxes. The stretch fabric pattern flowed precisely from panel to panel across multiple sections; while brass-painted wood mouldings were given a whiskey-rub patina and carefully attached from the rear to conceal all fixings.
With an intimate venue, came limited space for work on-site. All the panels were manufactured off-site and deftly adjusted within the confines of the theatre to accommodate vents, grilles, doors and the existing uneven floor surface, all whilst retaining the continuity of pattern. Our team also created the large circular bed, upholstered in a buttoned faux leather and raised on a fringe-trimmed platform.
