“Dancing with the Stars” duo Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will extend their run for an additional week, now through Sunday, August 18, 2013. The Grammy Award-winning “Prince of Salsa,” Luis Enrique also appears through August 18thas the special guest vocalist. Forever Tango is currently in performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 W 48th Street) through Sunday, September 15, 2013.
Created and directed by Luis Bravo, Forever Tango has touched the souls of millions worldwide since its inception in San Francisco in 1994, where it thrilled audiences for nearly two years. Called “A must-see” by the New York Times, Forever Tango originally opened on Broadway in 1997 where it played the Walter Kerr and Marquis Theatres for fourteen months and earned multiple Tony® and Drama Desk Award nominations. Celebrated by critics and audiences alike, the international sensation returned to Broadway’s Shubert Theater for a limited four month engagement in 2004.
Forever Tango is music, drama, culture, a way of life. 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. Sixteen world-class tango dancers, one vocalist and the eleven-piece Forever Tango orchestra will leave you breathless.
