Following a successful UK tour, Midnight Tango will transfer to London’s West End in 2012. Choreographed by “Strictly Come Dancing” stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, Midnight Tango will be at the Aldwych Theatre from January 20–March 31, 2012.

Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, the show stars Vincent and Flavia with a team of leading tango dancers. On tour, it has been the year’s fastest-selling show at many venues. Arlene Phillips, who produced Midnight Tango with Adam Spiegel, said: “I’m thrilled with how well the show has been received around the country, and sell-out shows and standing ovations are every producer’s dream. Vincent and Flavia in Midnight Tango are a must-see, and I hope the show’s arrival into the West End is just as successful.”

Midnight Tango was directed by Olivier award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce, with design by Morgan Large and lighting by James Whiteside. The live music is by Tango Siempre, featuring vocalist Guillermo Rozenthuler. For more information, see
