Storyline

Fermat's Last Tango was inspired by the achievements of Princeton University Mathematics Professor Andrew Wiles, who in June 1993 presented a proof to the theorem first set forth by French mathematician Pierre de Fermat in 1637. "Fermat's Last Tango" is a musical fantasia based on the true encounter between mathematician Andrew Wiles and Fermat's last theorem. The music composed by Joshua Rosenblum, the book by his wife Joanne Lessner, and the clever lyrics by the pair provide extraordinary entertainment. The play makes a clear statement about the enduring importance of mathematics and its intellectual impact over the millennia. Written by Anonymous

Fun for everyone
26 February 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

As a mathematician I enjoyed the subtle in-jokes, but even my fiancee (who is not a mathematician) laughed and enjoyed the humour. Even if you struggled with maths in school, you'll enjoy this. The casting is supurb and Fermat is brillantly played. I especially loved the "Prove my Theorem" game show. A must see (at least once).
