Central Park Tango is based on the real life story of Roy and Silo, two male chinstrap penguins from the Central Park Zoo who wish to have a family of their own. In this new musical we learn how Roy and Silo meet. We see how their relationship grows and how the penguin community around them challenges and reacts to their union. A penguin musical about the modern day family.
