Producers Arlene Phillips and Adam Spiegel will be throwing Russell a huge birthday party by moving the show’s press night to his birthday, February 5.
Arlene Phillips said: “I’m delighted that Russell Grant will be performing and dancing in Midnight Tango with Vincent and Flavia. Russell’s partnership with Flavia is well known, but I too have had a dance partnership with Russell, which began with his appearance in the title role of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium, followed by playing Teen Angel in the current national tour of Grease, and I’m delighted we now have a third partnership.”
With previews starting on January 30, Midnight Tango will run in the West End for a strictly limited five-week season, immediately followed by a national tour.
Midnight Tango is set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires. Vincent and Flavia both star in and have choreographed the show, which is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce.
Design is by Morgan Large and lighting by James Whiteside. The live music will be provided by top tango band, Tango Siempre, featuring vocalist Miguel Angel.
Performances will take place from Mondays to Saturdays at 7:30pm, and on Thursdays and Saturdays at 3pm (on February 4 at 7pm). Tickets are priced at
£20–£55. Call the box office on 08448 717 629 or see www.MidnightTango.co.uk for more information.
