In this side-splitting, screwball comedy, inspired by actual events at the Bremerhaven, Brooklyn, and Central Park Zoos, a community of penguins is hilariously turned upside down by sex, stereotypes and soggy sardines. Broadway World called The Penguin Tango 'sweet, charming, winsome and utterly enjoyable'.
