After its highly successful limited engagement in July at Mexico City's Teatro Alameda, the North American touring company of Luis Bravo's Forever Tango will return to please Mexican tango-lovers for two weeks only at the new Teatro Alameda 2, beginning Sept. 22.
The new Teatro Alameda 2 is located next door to the Teatro Alameda 1, and both venues are owned and operated by Mexico's broadcasting emporium, Televisa.
Broadway's Forever Tango opened June 16, 1997 at the Walter Kerr Theatre for a limited run that was supposed to end Aug. 9, 1997, but then was extended several times before announcing an open-ended run which was later transferred to the Marquis Theatre, where the show finally closed Aug. 1, 1998, after over a year on Broadway.
The passionate tango revue features 14 dancers, one vocalist and an 11-piece on-stage orchestra.
Designing Tango are Luis Bravo (lighting), Argemira Affonso (costumes), Tom Craft (sound) and Jean-Luc Don Vito & Marian Torre (make-up). Forever Tango will run at Mexico City's Teatro Alameda 2 Sept. 22- Oct. 6. For information and tickets call Boletel at (52-5) 422-2077.
