Burning up the Tango Floor

Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in Forever Tango.

Forever Tango...whether you see that as a promise or a threat all depends on your affinity for the hot Latin dance and those who perform it. Mine wasn't strong enough to be sustained by this rather conventional return to Broadway for the popular show, but it's worth noting that two of the hot-footed dancers burning up the boards of Walter Kerr Theatre are Maksim and Karina from Dancing with the Stars, who last Broadway hoofing was a couple of summers ago in Burn the Floor. And it was cool to do my first Broadway review for Time Out New York.
