Acclaimed show Midnight Tango is coming to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre.

Following a sold-out West End run and national tour earlier this year, producers Arlene Phillips and Adam Spiegel are delighted to announce that Olivier Award-nominated Midnight Tango starring Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace will be returning to London’s West End, opening at the Phoenix Theatre on Tuesday 5 February, following previews from 30 January 2013, for a strictly limited five-week season, immediately followed by a national tour.

The UK tour will begin at the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on 13 March 2013 and will run until 3 August 2013 at the Grand Theatre, Leeds.

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 brings to life all the drama, sensuality and elegance of the tango.

They are joined on stage by some of the finest tango dancers in the world, and, between them, they take the audience 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.

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 and lighting by James Whiteside.

The live music will be provided by top tango band, Tango Siempre, featuring vocalist Miguel Angel.
