Overview

Following the success of Midnight Tango, Strictly Come Dancing’s Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return to the West End with their new show Dance ‘til Dawn. Opening in October 2014, the show will play at the Aldwych Theatre before continuing on a national tour.

Featuring a huge variety of dance, from the Foxtrot to the Argentine Tango, Dance ‘til Dawn is directed and choreographed by the Olivier Award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce and is co-choreographed by Cacace and Simone. Set in the midst of a movie shoot on a studio backlot, a romance blossoms between Sadie Strauss and Tony DeLuca. When leading man Bobby Burns is murdered and a plot is formed to frame Tony, the pair are forced to quite literally dance their way out of trouble.

With a book by Ed Curtis, the show fuses Big Band hits such as ‘Feeling Good’, ‘Moon River’ and ‘Stand By Me’ with dance, romance and comedy to bring the audience the seductive glamour of 1940’s Hollywood.

Former world Argentine Tango champions, Cacace and Simone have been dancing together for years and star as lovers Sadie and Tony. Cast members also include Abbie Osman, Lauren Stroud, Teddy Kemper, Ivan De Freitas, Oliver Darley and Ben Harris. Produced by Adam Spiegel, Dance ‘til Dawn features stunning sets, glamorous costumes and a full live band to accompany the dance numbers.

Nominated for an Olivier Award in the Best Entertainment and Family category, the show features set design by Morgan Large, lighting design by James Whiteside and sound design by Richard Brooker.

Dance 'Til Dawn used beautiful sets and fantastic costumes! It is more of a pure dance show rather than a musical. There was an individual narrative in each dance rather than throughout the whole show which made it a bit hard to understand the emotional performances between the dancers but the dancing/choreography itself was brilliant!

Show was great - loved as music! Seat okay, overhang could obstruct but didn't as there wasn't any tall pieces of set so that was a bonus.
