Straight from the Golden Age of Hollywood, Dance ‘Til Dawn will open at London’s Aldwych Theatre on October 23. Tickets go on sale later this month, see for details.

With stunning sets, glamorous costumes and a full live band performing iconic numbers, including “Feeling Good”, “Moon River” and “Stand By Me”, Dance ‘Til Dawn fuses musical theatre, dance, romance and comedy.

The show transports you to the seductive age of Los Angeles in the 1940s. In the midst of a Hollywood film shoot, leading man Bobby Burns is murdered and a romance develops between starlet Sadie Strauss (Flavia Cacace) and the handsome Tony DeLuca (Vincent Simone). As a plot to frame DeLuca unfolds, the dazzling duo use their flawless footwork and spellbinding choreography to tango and quickstep their way out of trouble and into each other’s arms. See the February isssue of Dance Today for our interview with Flavia about the show.

Former world champions, Vincent and Flavia have been dancing together for 20 years and stole the hearts of the British public with their breathtaking Argentine tango on TV’s Strictly Come Dancing. Since the pair launched Midnight Tango in 2010, they have dance lived for over 500,000 people across the UK, both on tour and in London’s West End.

Dance ‘Til Dawn is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer and director, Karen Bruce, who directed Vincent and Flavia’s Olivier Award-nominated show, Midnight Tango. The show is produced by Adam Spiegel Productions.
