U.K. "Strictly Come Dancing" Stars Bring Midnight Tango to West End's Aldwych Theatre

News   U.K. "Strictly Come Dancing" Stars Bring Midnight Tango to West End's Aldwych Theatre Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, stars of BBC TV's "Strictly Come Dancing," will bring Midnight Tango to the West End's Aldwych Theatre, beginning performances Jan. 20, 2012, for a season through March 31 only, following a UK tour.

Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, Simone and Cacace both star in and have choreographed the show. It is produced by Arlene Phillips, former "Strictly Come Dancing" judge, and Adam Spiegel. In a press statement, Phillips commented, "I'm thrilled with how well the show has been received around the country, and sell-out shows and standing ovations are every producer's dream. Vincent and Flavia in Midnight Tango are a must-see, and I hope the show's arrival into the West End is just as successful."

The show is directed by Karen Bruce, who has choreographed for both "Strictly Come Dancing" and "So You Think You Can Dance" on BBC1, and whose theatre credits include Pacific Overtures (Donmar Warehouse) and Footloose (West End and UK tour). Design is by Morgan Large and lighting by James Whiteside. The live music will be provided by tango band Tango Siempre featuring vocalist Guillermo Rozenthuler.
