Latin Grammy-winning Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi will join the company of Luis Bravo’s Forever Tango for a two-week engagement, August 20 through September 1. Fonsi will succeed Grammy winner Luis Enrique, who will play his final performance on August 18. Dancing with the Stars duo Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will headline the production through August 11. Forever Tango opened on July 14, and will play a limited engagement through September 15 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
Fonsi's 1998 debut album, Comenzare, became an instant hit on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, making him a star across Latin America. Seven albums later, he has collaborated with Christina Aguilera, Martina McBride and more. Fonsi's many honors include the Latin Grammy, Latin Billboard and the ASCAP Voice of Music Award.
Forever Tango features 16 dancers and an 11-piece orchestra alongside rotating celebrity vocalists. Created and directed by Bravo, Forever Tango originally opened in 1997 at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre before transferring to the Marquis Theatre. It earned a Tony nomination for Best Choreography. In 2004, the production returned to Broadway’s Shubert Theatre for a four-month engagement.
