It's good the ice rink in New York's Rockefeller Center is closed because there would be a strong chance of the ice melting when onlookers at the famed mid-town Manhattan tourist attraction's Summer Concert Series are treated on Tuesday, July 1 at 5 PM to a spicy taste of Louis Bravo's new Broadway revue, Forever Tango, at the famous gold Prometheus Fountain.
Forever Tango is currently playing a limited engagement (extended through August 30) at the Walter Kerr Theatre on West 48th Street. Three tango couples from the cast and a quartet of musicians will perform numbers from the show on a special stage set among the cascading waters of the fountain and the tropical palms of the sunken plaza.
The instruments that give the tango its distinctive sound are the piano, violin, double bass, and the bandeleon, an instrument that's the first cousin to an accordion.
Del Demontreux, a local NY on-air personality (WQEW-AM), will host and give a play by play of the torrid dance moves.
