Details of On Your Feet and the Ticket Luck value
On Your Feet! is the latest bio musical to hit the Broadway stage and is all about the Grammy winning legend Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio Estefan. Running successfully since November 5, 2015, the musical stars Ana Villafañe and Josh Segarra in the leading roles. Directed by the Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, critics have called it an “undeniably crowd pleasing musical”. On Your Feet tickets will treat you to smoking hot choreography and charming plot, whereas the rhythm will keep you on your feet – no pun intended.
Latin Rhythms To Set Broadway On Fire
The recipe of On Your Feet! may be familiar, but the flavor is certainly fresh. The jukebox musical celebrates the delightful melodies and the beautiful marriage of Gloria Estefan and her producer-musician-entrepreneur husband Emilio Estefan. Director Jerry Mitchell has rolled out Estefan's hit tracks with an energetic flair and the theatre comes alive with “Conga,” “Dr. Beat,” “Don't Wanna Lose You,” and the blockbuster “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”. The superb choreography by Sergio Trujillo draws in the audience and keeps them hooked throughout its run. Actor-singer Ana Villafañe grabs the show with her very first scene and sets the stage on fire with her effervescence and sexiness. The book by Oscar winning screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris conveys the partnership between Gloria and Emilio – strong, fiery and inspirational.
The skilled creative team and the stellar cast masterfully takes the audience between Miami and Cuba, starting from the 60s and all the way to the early 90s. Brilliant production efforts make it a perfect fit for Broadway and the lifelong, diehard fans of Gloria Estefan will be thrilled. On Your Feet! not just meets expectations – it definitely exceeds them.
Inspirational, Intimate & Uplifting – Meet The Estefans
The jukebox musical checks off all the usual points in the plot – humble roots, the initial hurdles, tragedy, triumph, and a fitting gratuitous dance concert. Set in a familiar music industry scenario, the musical highlights Gloria, a singer with extraordinary talent and her rise from humble origins. She faces personal and professional challenges but eventually through will and dedication emerges triumphant.
The young Gloria played by Ana Villafañe is introduced to the audience as she settles in Miami after relocating from Cuba. Her father who is fighting in Vietnam sends her encouraging messages on tape and while she listens to his words, “You're a born artist, my angel. And one day you're going to be a big star”, she strums her guitar and sings improvised compositions.
Her father José returns from war with multiple sclerosis and it sets up for one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the show. Gloria confesses her love for Emilio to José, who is unable to speak and the connection between the father and daughter is stirring. Andrea Burns who plays Gloria's mother Gloria Fajardo gives a tart and vivacious performance as she opposes her daughter's ambitions and dreams. Part of it stems from envy as she wasn't allowed by her own father to pursue a career in music. Alma Cuervo steps in as Consuelo (Gloria's grandmother) and she's all supportive of her burgeoning career, extending love and warmth to her.
Emilio is the force behind the Miami label Sound Machine and there is an instant spark between the two. Gloria impressed him by singing “Anything For You” and from there onwards things move at a faster pace – both in romance and music department. Their timeless hits are featured and the audience is treated to the scene where Emilio and Gloria try to expand their style beyond Latin music. “Congo” gets everyone grooving and the ambiance becomes joyous.
On Your Feet Tickets – A Must Buy This Season
The energy that you'll witness in the musical will be spectacular. The performers demonstrate the universal appeal of the Estefans' rhythm as every occasion, be it their wedding, bar mitzvah, convention or party comes alive with the infectious power of Latin beats. On Your Feet! is visually and aurally compelling, presenting an ingenious fusion of beats, top 40 pop songs and a stripped down, concert-style approach. The musical is a portrait of devotion and how Emilio and Gloria were able to endure the struggles and triumphs in the industry, and in their personal lives. Don't miss this explosively energetic and surprisingly emotional musical.
