Running since October 2015 A new musical that tells the true life story of musical icons Gloria and Emilio Estefan and their journey from Cuban immigrants to global superstars.
From the producers: 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. "On Your Feet!" is the new Broadway musical about two people who believed in their talent, their music and each other and became an international sensation.
With seven Grammy Awards and over 100 million albums sold worldwide, Gloria Estefan is known as the "Queen of Latin Pop." Her chart-topping hit songs include "Conga," "The Rhythm is Going To Get You" and "1, 2, 3," among others. She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and has received multiple Billboard Awards for her many chart-topping hits.
Emilio Estefan is a music, television and film producer who has been instrumental in shaping, developing and directing the careers of his wife, Gloria, as well as Shakira, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jon Secada, among many others. At the Latin Grammy Awards of 2000, he received the award for Producer of the Year.
The musical will be bilingual and span Estefan's early years in Miami as well as her recovery from a broken back in 1990.
Despite its unenthralling dramatics, the show does have an underlying warmth. Its chief assets, though, are those musical routines..."On Your Feet!" is not going to revolutionize Broadway, but, alongside a bland story, it does offer some musical fireworks.
The infectious, earnest musical "On Your Feet!" initially stutters out the gate and ends somewhat awkwardly, but has a fun, percussive middle, even as it skates perilously close to melodrama. It's saved by its genuine heart - and a list of great tunes.
