Strictly favourites light up the stage with refreshing routines
|Strictly fantastic - Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace star in Dance 'Til Dawn at MK Theatre until Saturday, April 18th.|
Strictly Come Dancing has drawn in millions of viewers for more than a decade, thanks to its glittering costumes, complicated routines and dazzling professional dancers. And the Olivier Award-nominated Dance ‘Til Dawn is an evening of delight for any fan of the show, as Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone take audiences on a trip to 1940s Hollywood.
It’s a simple story, with a couple of memorable one-liners, set in the middle of a film shoot. The leading man is murdered and a romance blooms between the star Sadie (Flavia) and her lover Tony (Vincent). But really this West End production on its UK tour is all about the dancing. Stylish, humorous and spectacular, it’s difficult to tear your eyes away.
Making a beautiful couple, the star pair didn’t put a move wrong on Monday evening. The chemistry between them is palpable, and that’s the beauty of seeing it live instead of on TV. There is great support from the other performers, including Teddy Kempner as the detective and Abbie Osman as Lana.
The live orchestra was a wonderful touch to an already fantastic performance. And their famous Argentine Tango routine is not to be missed.
