Gloria Estefan has sold over 100 million records and sold out stadiums around the world. Emilio and Gloria Estefan together have won 26 Grammy Awards® but their music is only half the story. From the heart of Havana to the streets of Miami came a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the music industry had ever seen. On Your Feet! is the new Broadway musical that follows the Estefan s journey to superstardom set to their chart-topping smash hits including Rhythm is Gonna Get You, Conga, 1-2-3, Get On Your Feet, and a new original song written for the musical by Gloria and her daughter Emily Estefan, If I Never Get to Tell You.
On Your Feet! stars Ana Villafañe making her Broadway debut as Gloria and Josh Segarra as Emilio. The musical is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray) and choreographed by Olivier Award® winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis) with an original book by Academy Award® winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Bodyguard Musical). Completing the production team are three-time Tony®-nominated scenic designer David Rockwell, Tony®-nominated costume designer Emilio Sosa, Tony Award®-winning lighting designer Kenneth Posner, Tony Award®-winning sound designer Steve Kennedy with music direction by Lon Hoyt and orchestrations by Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
On Your Feet! opened on Broadway at the Marquis Theater on November 5, 2015

An Enjoyable Album from a Jukebox Bio-Musical
This musical has joined the very small list of Juke Box or Bio-Musicals that I will play occasionally, a list which includes only “Mama Mia” and “Beautiful”. The list mostly reflects that I enjoyed all of the music, arrangements, unity of the music and book, and cast. The front part of the musical is somewhat weak, probably a reflection of the choices made in producing the album. It is live, something that is acceptable if the audience is limited to applause at the end of the numbers. That is not the situation here. A lot of the songs are followed by dialogue leading to the next song, the book has tried to be funny, and the audience laughs. There is just too much as well. However, by the second act of the musical, the emotion of the story and some really wonderful songs from Gloria Estefan in the latter part of the show redeem any transgressions from the first act.
This is not simply a person or persons, the Estefans, whose supposedly interesting life and songs seemed to be a good basis for a musical. The album is produced by the Estefans, who obviously had close involvement with the entire project. They did all of their own orchestrations, and these are certainly one of the album’s highlights. Ana Villafane, who plays Gloria Estefan, is terrific as a singer and actress in the dialogue. She carries the album along with some really fine songs and the interesting career path of the Estefans. Audience seem to agree, since last week this was the second highest grossing show on Broadway.
You can submusre yourself in it and laugh and cry or just sit back and enjoy the wonderful music (including a new song written just for the show by Gloria & Emily Estefan)
But this you won't be disappointed!
