The Nederlander Organization and Estefan Enterprises, Inc are pleased to announce that On Your Feet! – a new musical based on the life story of seven-time Grammy-winning international superstar Gloria Estefan and her husband, legendary producer-musician-entrepreneur Emilio Estefan – will premiere on Broadway in Fall 2015 at a Nederlander theatre to be announced, following a Summer 2015 World Premiere engagement in Chicago.
On Your Feet! will be directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray), and choreographed by four-time Drama Desk nominee Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis) with a book by two-time Drama Desk nominee Alexander Dinelaris (The Bodyguard Musical, Zanna Don’t). On Your Feet! is 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 Gloria’s chart-topping, smash hits such as “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “1-2-3,” “Mi Tierra,” and “Conga,” in addition to new music penned by the Estefans, the show will bring a new sound to Broadway and get audiences on their feet.
