Broadway is about to get a whole lot hotter! The once-engaged “Dancing With the Stars” pros Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be getting steamy again, but this time it’s happening on the Great White Way. The dancing duo has signed on for a limited three-week run of Luis Bravo’s show Forever Tango. The show’s venue will be the Walter Kerr Theatre from July 9th through the 28th.
"It is such an honor to have been given this opportunity to star on Broadway again," Smirnoff said in a statement. "Forever Tango is an incredible production and the Tango is an intense, sensuous dance of passion. Asking Maks to join me was in and of itself intense, so I figured by opening night, it would be explosive!”
It will be interesting to see how the two of them work together outside of the Dancing With The Stars ballroom. The pair first found love with one another previously on the Broadway stage during a production of Burn the Floor, and was engaged on New Year’s Day 2009 in Las Vegas. Smirnoff and Chmerkovskiy went through a highly publicized and bitter break up in October of that same year.
In Forever Tango they’ll join guest vocalist Gilberto Santa Rosa and complete there run time to begin preparations for the fall season of Dancing With The Stars.
