Martin de Leon Joins Broadway's Forever Tango as Guest Vocalist
By Carey Purcell
Argentinean tango singer Martin de Leon will join Forever Tango beginning Sept. 3 as the final guest vocalist of the production's Broadway run.
Forever Tango currently features guest star Luis Fonsi, who will play his final performance Sept. 1. The production includes 16 tango dancers, one vocalist and an 11-piece orchestra.
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."
Forever Tango began performances July 9 at the Water Kerr Theatre. The production runs through Sept. 15.
