The show has been on a 33-week long tour of the UK, and will run at the Phoenix from 22 September to 3 December.
The production will follow Guys and Dolls at the theatre after it was announced the musical was to close early.
Cacace described the show as an "intimate, emotional show", adding she was "looking forward to celebrating our very best work in the West End".
Simone said: "It may be our final theatre show but we're going out with a bang!"
The Last Tango will run at the Phoenix Theatre from 22 September to 3 December.
