Show Stoppers column: Nancy Stevens previews three hot theatre shows to look out for in MK this month.
Tango Moderno, November 14 to 18, at MK Theatre:
Strictly superstar partners for two decades, Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, return to the stage with their most audacious and thrilling show yet, Tango Moderno.
Previous productions Midnight Tango, Dance ‘til Dawn and The Last Tango have all been sell-out hits.
The Last Tango was to be their farewell tour. However, quoting Flavia: “As we were creating our last show, we developed a number of thrilling new routines, but we just couldn’t accommodate them. On tour, people begged us to continue.”
Therefore, they decided to do another show. The new production fuses Ballroom, Latin and Argentine tango for a performance that smoulders with desire.
Sunset Boulevard, November 28 to December 2, MK Theatre:
One of the great musicals, Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession, based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film with lyrics by Don Black.
In her Sunset Boulevard mansion, faded silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond (Ria Jones), lives in a fantasy world.
Strictly finalist Danny Mac as Joe Gillis, on the run from debtors, stumbles into her reclusive world.
Persuaded to work on Norma’s masterpiece – a film script she believes will revive her screen career – he is seduced by her and her lavish lifestyle.
Seasons of Song (Company MK) November 16 to 18, St George’s Church, Wolverton:
For over 20 years, Company MK has been wowing local audiences with hit musicals and concerts.
The latest concert takes us through the years, including numbers from West Side Story, Hamilton, and Carousel.
A mix of long-standing performers and great new talent star in this musical.
