The return engagement of Luis Bravo's Forever Tango concludes its Broadway run at the Walter Kerr Theater Sept. 15. Upon closing, Forever Tango will have played 7 previews and 73 performances.



Previews began July 9, prior to an offical opening July 14. 

The production featured 16 tango dancers, one vocalist and an 11-piece orchestra. Numerous guest artists joined the show during its run, including Gilberto Santa Rosa, "Dancing With the Stars"' Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Luis Enrique, Luis Fonsi and Martin de Leon.

Forever Tango originally opened on Broadway in 1997, receiving numerous Drama Desk and Tony Award nominations. It returned to Broadway for a four-month engagement in 2004.

"Forever Tango is music, drama, culture, a way of life," press notes state. "The popularity of tango has exploded all over the world. Sensuous and sophisticated, the tango is a feeling that you dance. A story is channeled through the flick of the leg, the tug of a hand, the tap of a foot, and the arch of an eyebrow. It’s passionate, yet melancholic. Tender, yet violent. You dance it with somebody, but it is so internal, you dance it by yourself."
