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

Fermat's Last Tango is a playful romp. The actors perform quite well, there is a plot, and good humor on top of that. My personal favorite is Pythagoras. When Daniel Keene solves Fermat's Last Theorem, a puzzle that has stumped math professors for ages, jealous Fermat comes back to the living world from the After Math, the place famous mathematicians go when they die. He takes Daniel to met his fellow After Math "friends," who cannot decide whether or not to allow Daniel a place in the After Math. When Fermat discovers a flaw in Daniel's theorem, it may seem like doom for the hopeful mathematician. Will Daniel be able to discover and fix his flaw before the After Math mathematicians decide it is too late?
