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.

(c) Matthew Murphy Gloria Estefan’s hit songs Rhythm is Gonna Get You, Conga and Get on Your Feet just to name a few, have earned her 100 million albums and sold out stadiums all over the world on top of her 26 Grammy’s with her husband Emilio. Her voice and his vision made them a huge success but their music is only half of their story. On Your Feet brings their story of true love and international success to the Broadway stage.
  

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.
