STRICTLY Come Dancing stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace bring their final ever tour, The Last Tango, to The Playhouse this week.

Fresh from their sell-out shows Midnight Tango and Dance ’Til Dawn, the pair star in their most poignant production to date as they celebrate 20 years of dancing together, while preparing to take on new projects. It is time for the World Argentine Tango Champions to say goodbye to Edinburgh audiences.

Cacace says, “We have had such a fantastic time creating and dancing in Midnight Tango and Dance ’Til Dawn.

“It’s an incredible experience to perform live in front of our wonderful audience night after night, but all good things must come to an end.

“It’s going to be intimate, emotional and full of our award-winning Argentine tango.

“The Last Tango is going to celebrate our best work and most beautiful dance moves before we say farewell to theatre.”

Simone adds, “The last few years have been intense - we’ve loved it. It may be our final theatre tour but we’re going to go out with a bang.

“This is going to be our best show yet.”

At the Playhouse, Simone and Cacace will be joined on stage by Teddy Kempner, Matthew Gent, Callum Clack, Diana Girbau, Rebecca Herszenhorn, Aaron James, Rebecca Lisewski, Jemima Loddy, Ian Oswald and Grant Thresh.

The Last Tango is directed by Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions.

The Last Tango, Playhouse, Greenside Pl, Thursday-Saturday, 7.30pm (matinee 2.30pm), £17.90-£59.90, 0844-871 3014
