Two to Tango was a No-Maj musical by playwright Cecil Edwards.[1][2] It featured music and lyrics by Nelson Selgado.[1][2]

It was advertised as returning to Broadway at The Kingly Court in New York for four weeks beginning on the evening of Monday 29 November 1926.[1] This production featured a "star-studded" cast, including leading actor Angelo Benitez, who was accompanied by a troupe of thirty Argentine dancers.[1][2] It was directed by Wallace Rosenberg, choreographed by Edwin Halsted, and featured costumes by Vincent Davies.[1] The production included matinee shows on Wednesdays and Saturdays.[1]

An unknown critic raved that the play was "delightful, just delightful!"[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The name of this musical is somewhat anachronistic as it is presumably derived from the idiom "it takes two to tango" which was not coined until 1952.
