Gloria Estefan Musical Heading to Broadway Fall 2015
A new musical based on the lives of Gloria and Emilio Estefan, On Your Feet will open at a yet to be announced Nederlander Theatre on Broadway in Fall 2015.
The musical will be produced by The Nederlander Organization and Estefan Enterprises, Inc and will have a Summer 2015 World Premiere engagement in Chicago, before opening on Broadway in Fall 2015. It will feature a book by Alexander Dinelaris ('The Bodyguard', 'Zanna Don't!') and will be directed by Jerry Mitchell with choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
On Your Feet will follow the story of "two people who, through an unwavering dedication to one another and their pursuit of the American dream, showcased their talent, their music and their heritage to the world in a remarkable rise to global superstardom." Set to a soundtrack of Gloria Estefan's songs such as "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, "1-2-3," "Mi Tierra," and "Conga," it will also feature new music written by the Estefans.
Gloria Estefan is a seven Grammy Award winner, and has sold over 100 million albums worldwide. She is the most successful Latin crossover performer in the history of pop music. She recorded the Oscar-nominated song "Music Of My Heart," and has been presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, named BMI Songwriter of the Year, and received an American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Additional creative team members and casting will be announced at a later date.
