Direct from a 33-week UK tour and following sell-out hit shows Midnight Tango and Dance ‘Til Dawn Strictly superstars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace will bring their final-ever theatre show to the West End this autumn. Their most moving production yet, The Last Tango, will open at the Phoenix Theatre on Thursday 22 September 2016 and is booking until 3 December.
Twenty years of dancing together has seen them become Strictly Come Dancing favourites, World Argentine Tango Champions, and create and star in their own Olivier Award nominated West End productions – but now, as the nation’s favourite dancers prepare to take on new projects, it is time for Vincent and Flavia to say goodbye to audiences in London in a brand new, thrilling live performance.
A reflection of life and love, The Last Tango follows George as he delves into an attic full of memories. As he reminisces, poignant moments are brought to life through sparkling and intricate choreography. Vincent, Flavia and The Last Tango company tell George’s tale through Rumba, Jive, Flamenco, Salsa and, of course, the Argentinean Tango performed by a full live band.
“We have had such a fantastic time on tour with The Last Tango and we feel incredibly lucky to have performed live in front of amazing audiences night after night. The Last Tango is an intimate, emotional show; full of the most beautiful dance moves and, of course, our award-winning Argentine tango. We’re looking forward to celebrating our very best work in the West End.”
Vincent added: “The last few years creating and performing Midnight Tango, Dance ‘Til Dawn and The Last Tango have been intense! It may be our final theatre show but we’re going out with a bang! I’m so happy audiences in London get to see our best show yet!”
The Last Tango is directed by Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions (Motown, The Producers, Dance ‘Til Dawn, Midnight Tango, Love Me Tender, The Mousetrap on Tour).
