The Edinburgh Playhouse dances the Midnight Tango

Following rave reviews for the West End premiere of Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace’s Olivier nominated show, Midnight Tango, the Strictly stars are coming to the Edinburgh Playhouse bringing new audiences to dance, as well as delighting regular dance goers. Last year’s tour was highly successful and was the fastest selling show of the year in many of the venues. Producers Arlene Phillips and Adam Spiegel are pleased to announce that box office sales in London and around the country have exceeded all expectations and Midnight Tango has now taken almost £10 million at the box office (2011 tour, West End run and advance ticket sales for 2012 tour combined).

Vincent and Flavia:  "We are thrilled to be performing Midnight Tango in front of such amazing audiences. It's a dream come true and we are both overwhelmed with how the show has been received. We are very much looking forward to the upcoming national tour."

Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, the show brings to life all the drama, sensuality and elegance of the tango. In the show, the audience is taken on a journey into the heart of this intoxicating city, as danger and excitement, joy and jealousy, pain and passion combine into a spectacular and explosive evening.  Former World Champions, Vincent and Flavia, are joined on stage by some of the finest tango dancers in the world, including Leonel Di Cocco, Richard Manuel, Jenny Nolan, Daniel Raphael, Pauline Reibell, Yaisuri Salamanca, Guillermo Torrens, Alexandra Wood and Leandro Palou & Romina Godoy, and actors Teddy Kempner and Tricia Deighton. 

Midnight Tango is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce, who has choreographed for both Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance on BBC 1, and whose theatre credits include Pacific Overtures (Donmar Warehouse) and Footloose (West End and UK Tour).  Choreography is by Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, design by Morgan Large, lighting by James Whiteside and sound by Gareth Owen.  The live music is provided by the UK’s leading tango band, Tango Siempre, featuring vocalist Miguel Angel.
