The group, known as the Magic Mike Male Review, describe their show as " The Ultimate Ladies Night Out ". How many Toledo area ladies are ready for their night out, promoted to warm up the coldest of winter nights? Enough that two shows are scheduled at 7 and 10 p.m. at the historic Valentine Theatre on Saturday, January 16.

Given the nature of the show, those spending $20 to $30 a ticket, expect to be able to pay close attention to detail. Producers of the show are quick to point out that it features two of the dancers from the film, released this summer, Magic Mike XXL and The Chippendales - as seen in the movie -   Jerry Pope, Sergio, Tanner and Landon,  With additional members or the original touring Chippendales,  Kevin West, Timothy St James, Tristian Micheals -  and your Emcee and host  Lenny P.!

There has been much speculation as to whether there really is, or has ever been, a real Magic Mike. Channing Tatum, who actually was a stripper in Tampa, Florida, was the supposed inspiration for the Steven Soderbergh film. However, former 'co-workers' of Tatum have challenged that and Tatum has stated in an interview that he has few recollections. None of that really seems to matter, however. The first Magic Mike film that premiered in June of 2012 started the phenomenon that is now the Magic Mike Male Revue tour.

Reserved tickets go on sale this Friday, October 9 for both shows on January 16 at 7 & 10 p.m. Tickets prices are $20 in advance, $30 (first 3 rows) and $25 day of, if tickets are still available. Door and bars will open at 6 pm and throughout second performance. Order by phone at 419/242-2787, in person at The Valentine box office and online at

Sherlock Holmes Most Terrifying Adventure! The Hound of the Baskervilles Live at The Valentine’s Studio A Theatre!

At Baskerville Hall on the grim moors of Devonshire, a legendary curse has apparently claimed one more victim. Sir Charles Baskerville has been found dead. There are no signs of violence, but his face is hideously distorted with terror. Years earlier, a hound-like beast with blazing eyes and dripping jaws was reported to have torn out the throat of Hugo Baskerville. Has the spectral destroyer struck again? More important, is Sir Henry Baskerville, younger heir to the estate, now in danger? Enter Sherlock Holmes, summoned to protect Sir Henry from the fate that has threatened the Baskerville family. As Holmes and Watson begin to investigate, a blood-chilling howl from the fog-shrouded edges of the great Grimpen Mire signals that the legendary hound of the Baskervilles is poised for yet another murderous attack.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is directed for The Valentine by Elizabeth Cottle and is based on the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Hound of the Baskervilles will be staged in Studio A, our 85 seat intimate black box theatre at 410 Adams Street, around the corner from our main entrance.

Join Holmes and Watson for a contemporary telling of The Hound of the Baskervilles, Live on The Valentine’s Studio A stage for nine weekend only performances - March 6-8, 13-15 and 27-29, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 2 PM.
