"On Your Feet!" The Story of Emilio & Gloria Estefan
"Sponsored by On Your Feet"
HER VOICE. HIS VISION. THEIR STORY.
I truly am a sucker for a good biopic. The only thing better than a film about a famous person's life is when they make it into a musical! Opening on Broadway on October 5th at the Marquis Theatre, comes a new musical based on the lives of the fantastic Cuban musical sensations. No, not fictional character Ricky Ricardo, but Emilio and Gloria Estefan.
In a season of Broadway that the New York Times recently lauded as quite diverse, this latin-flavored musical is sure to get you on your feet in the audience as you dance along to the tunes you know so well. This beautiful story of lasting love and the fruit it bared through a musical partnership is definitely not a show to miss.
ON YOUR FEET! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter century, including “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “Get on Your Feet,” “Don’t Want to Lose You,” “1-2-3,” and “Coming Out of the Dark,” and the Broadway musical boasts a creative team to match its incomparable song list. Two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots) directs, with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award® winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman).
If you're still not convinced, watch the journey to bring the Estefan Story to stage and see the incredible background to creating this musical from the life of the brilliant talent.
