FOREVER TANGO took San Francisco by storm in 1994 where it played an unprecedented 92 weeks. The production opened on Broadway in June of 1997 for what was expected to be an eight-week engagement, went on to run for 14 months and garnered multiple Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations. The show returned to San Francisco in 1999 and was hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "Forever magical?this sensual musical has perfected the passionate power of the famed dance." Since then, the show has toured internationally, and returned to Broadway, where it was lauded by critics and enjoyed an extended run. Between international and national tours, FOREVER TANGO returned to San Francisco in 2004, where the San Francisco Chronicle declared "'Forever Tango' is one big seduction, a perfect theater date for couples on the verge of coupling The show has lost none of its allure? the music and dancing are top notch, the costumes are stunning." Its last visit to San Francisco was in 2006 and the production has since added several exciting new dance numbers, which will be unveiled in this engagement.

Created and directed by Luis Bravo, FOREVER TANGO features fourteen world-class tango dancers, a vocalist and an eleven-piece, on-stage orchestra in an evening that celebrates the passionate music and dance of Argentina. The FOREVER TANGO orchestra boasts four of only 200 bandoneon players known worldwide. The dances, performed to original and traditional music, are the result of collaboration between each couple and director/creator Bravo.
