NEW YORK, NY (Tuesday, May 21, 2013) - Luis Bravo’s internationally acclaimed entertainment phenomenon Forever Tango, will return to the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 W 48th Street), its original Broadway home, for ten weeks only with performances beginning Tuesday, July 9, 2013 through Sunday, September 15, 2013 and an official opening set for Sunday, July 14, 2013.  Five-time Grammy Award-winner Gilberto Santa Rosa will star as the first special guest star for the first three weeks of the engagement.  Future vocalist casting will be announced at a later date.  Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting Tuesday, May 28, 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 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.

Gilberto Santa Rosa is one of the most successful Latin music vocalists in the world, having achieved, to date, fourteen #1 hits on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart, a multitude of Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum albums and five Grammy Awards.  Santa Rosa has the honor of being the artist with the most #1 hits on Billboard’s Tropical Albums chart (11 total).

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.

Fans of Gilberto Santa Rosa will have first access to seats via an exclusive online presale Tuesday, May 21 through Monday, May 27, 2013.  To participate, fans must “like” Santa Rosa or Forever Tango on Facebook or follow either of them on Twitter in order to gain access to the online ticketing link. 

The performance schedule for Forever Tango will be as follows: Tuesday through Saturday at 8 pm with 3 pm matinee performances on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.  Tickets, which range from $30.00 to $149.00 (premium seating ranges from $175 to $199), go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 via telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200/(800) 432-7250.
