Tango gets (even more) theatrical

Tanguera-club Tanguera -- The Tango Musical got mixed reviews (some adoring, some not) during its recent New York run, but given the born-again popularity of dance on television thanks to shows such as Dancing With the Stars, you can bet that tango fans will turn out when the 30-plus actor-dancers of Tanguera hit the stage at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts this Wednesday through Sunday.

The Argentine show has toured the world and in telling its story features such classic tangos as La Cumparsita, Derecho Viejo, Danzarin and El Choclo, along with new tangos.

Performances are 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday at the Broward Center, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $25 to $75.  Call 954-462-0222 or visit the Broward Center's web site for information.
