    "This is a foolish production. Belittling its own music, it turns tango into a mere formula, an excuse. Its real heart is in surface displays of costume, makeup, coiffure and sexuality as melodrama. Only the musicians look sincere. "
    Alastair Macauley for New York Times

    "Delivers just what its title promises."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "This isn’t a show for purists. ... Maybe that’s why tango endures after all these years: Like the smartest predators, it evolves."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "A half-hearted, monotonous stab at exploiting the broad appeal of tango."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "I am no expert on tango, but I sure had a swell time."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Two-and-a-quarter hours really is a lot of tango time. ...addresses the fatigue issue by steadily cranking up the degree of difficulty in the routines as the marathon progresses."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
