Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in association with the Jewish Community Center of Central New Jersey has the privilege to have a special and one time screening of the movie Tango Shalom, at 6PM followed by a Q&A at 8 PM with some of the main producers, writers, and actors of the movie. 

The long-awaited Joel Zwick (Director, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) comedy dance film extravaganza!

When a female Tango dancer (Karina Smirnoff) asks a Rabbi (Jos Laniado) to enter a dance competition, there’s one big problem—due to his Orthodox beliefs, he’s not allowed to touch her! The prize money is much needed for both, so they develop a plan to enter the competition without sacrificing his sacred beliefs. The bonds of family and community are tested one dazzling dance step at a time in this lighthearted fable.

Starring Jos Laniado, Judi Beecher, Claudio Laniado, Renée Taylor, Lainie Kazan, Karina Smirnoff, Marci Fine.

Directed by Gabriel Bologna Rating: PG-13

FILM at 6 PM; Q&A at 8 PM with the Laniado brothers (Jos and Claudio), Judi Beecher, Marci Fine, Bob Greenberg, Laura Fay Lewis, Bern Cohen, and Hamza Zaman.
