SOMBRAS TANGO CABARET
November 7–17, 2019
The Edge Theater: 5451 N Broadway St., Chicago Il 60640
Come backstage at the Sombras Tango Cabaret with Fantastik Frank and the Tango Brigade as performers prepare for the evening performance. When an unexpected guest appears, Frank must decide if he can confront his own shadows or turn away from his past. Joyful, funny and full of surprises, the story is told through Argentine-style tango, contemporary dance, acting and original music and songs.
Premiered in November 2018, Tango 21 Dance Theater's fourth original production is a tango musical complete with actors, singers, dancers and musicians.
