EL TANGO CAFÉ

El Tango Café tells the story of one man’s experiences upon stumbling into a beautiful tango cafe filled with friendship, love and heartbreak. The show premiered in August 2014 at the Fasseas White Box Theater in Chicago, and is Tango 21 Dance Theater's first original production.

In 2015, El Tango Café was remounted for our first Midwest Tour, bringing the show to The Acorn Theater (Three Oaks, MI), Stage 773 (Chicago, IL) and Taliesin Hillside Theater (Spring Green, WI).

Remounted in 2018 at The Edge Theater in Chicago.
