ON YOUR FEET is the story of the international duo, Emilio and Gloria Estefan. The show features some of Gloria’s most iconic songs such as, “Conga”, “1-2-3”, “Reach”, “Everlasting Love” and more.
The show opens with a young Gloria singing and dancing. She has a dream of performing but is busy with school work and helping take care of her sick father. When her grandmother introducers her to the leader of the band, Miami Sound Machine, Gloria’s dreams become a reality. Emilio is the band manager and become’s Gloria’s love. During the show you see their relationship blossom and her music take off.
Ana Villafane who played Gloria was perfect for the role. She sounded just like Gloria and had a great confidence to her. The other standout was young Emilio, played by Eduardo Hernandez.
The show was a jukebox musical so if you are a fan of Gloria Estefan, this show is for you! My mom and I had a great time and really enjoyed it. The dancing was fantastic, the costumes were great and the story line was entertaining. For a fun night out, I suggest seeing the show!
