‘Forever Tango’ creator brings the heat

They don’t call it “Forever Tango” for nothing. The internationally popular tango show conceived and directed by cellist Luis Bravo has been going for more than two decades. Developed in 1990, the show first hit Broadway in 1997 for what was expected to be an eight-week engagement. It ended up running for 14 months and was followed by three different revivals, with tours around the world in between. The latest incarnation of “Forever Tango” was at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre over the summer, just closing mid-September before hitting the road for a tour that brings it to Boston this week, beginning Tuesday. A combination of dancing, spectacle, and dynamite music, “Forever Tango” features 14 dancers, a singer, and an 11-piece orchestra onstage, including Bravo himself on cello. In a recent phone conversation from Argentina, he chatted about his enduring show.
