In the midst of a Hollywood film shoot leading man Bobby Burns is murdered and a romance develops between beautiful starlet Sadie Strauss, played by Flavia Cacace, and her handsome lover Tony DeLuca, played by Vincent Simone. As a plot to frame Tony DeLuca unfolds, the duo use their flawless footwork and spellbinding choreography to Tango and Quickstep their way out of trouble and into each other’s arms.
Dance 'Til Dawn has book by Ed Curtis, set design by Morgan Large, lighting by James Whiteside, sound by Richard Brooker and costume by Vicky Gill. The choreographers are Karen Bruce, Flavia Cacace, Vincent Simone. Produced by Adam Spiegel Productions.

They have both appeared in several series of BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing and have previously appeared on stage together across the UK in Midnight Tango, which they launched in 2010. Dance 'Til Dawn will also tour the UK following its run at the Aldwych.
