‘Tango Shalom’ Theatrical Expands Across US As Demand And Momentum Build
“The improbable story has become the little interfaith family comedy dance film that could.” – Original Cin
“Admirers of the film ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ will notice some of the same ethnic complications and sheer joy of living running through ‘Tango Shalom.’ That is no coincidence since Joel Zwick, who directed ‘Greek Wedding,’ also produced ‘Tango.’”
– The Jewish Journal
Los Angeles, CA (September 17, 2021) – Tango Shalom’s strong interfaith and positive message of family, tolerance, and inclusion is resonating with Jewish and secular audiences and critics across the country. The multi-award-winning, Joel Zwick produced dance comedy, is expanding into areas with predominantly Jewish demographics, including Palm Springs, CA, Long Island, New York, and opening anew in South Florida and Scottsdale, AZ.
Tango Shalom was filmed on the streets of Crown Heights and had unprecedented access to “770,” the center of the Chabad-Lubavitch world movement and considered to be an iconic site in Judaism. The film was directed by Gabriel Bologna, son of Renée Taylor and the late Joseph Bologna. The elder Bologna also co-wrote and produced the film with brothers Jos and Claudio Laniado of Convivencia Forever Films. Co-produced by Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Robert Meyer Burnett (Agent Cody Banks franchise), Zizi Bologna, and celebrity choreographer Jordi Caballero.
Starring Lainie Kazan, Renée Taylor, Karina Smirnoff, Joseph Bologna, Jos and Claudio Laniado, Bern Cohen and Judi Beecher.
This fable explores how an Orthodox Rabbi solicits input from various religious leaders and friends to enter a tango competition while remaining true to his religious code.
