Livret: Alexander Dinelaris
Production à la création:

On Your Feet follows the story of two people who­through an unwavering dedication to one another and their pursuit of the American dream­showcased their talent, their music and their heritage to the world in a remarkable rise to global superstardom. Set to Gloria Estefan's songs such as 'Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,' '1-2-3,' 'Mi Tierra,' and 'Conga,' in addition to new music penned by the Estefans.

Act I
Gloria suffers a severe spinal injury during a 1990 tour-bus accident and faces a long, painful recovery. In a flashback, Gloria has a happy childhood in Miami and meets Emilio in her late teens. He becomes her business manager and record producer. They marry in 1978. Despite Gloria's reluctance to be fully in the public spotlight, the two work to achieve success with an innovative commercial crossover style of Cuban and American dance styles, both in Spanish and English. They still struggle against the pre-conceived notions of their record label and the radio stations, who doubt the appeal of their music to the general American public. They have a major hit with the infectious "Conga".

Act II
Gloria and Emilio deal with Gloria's stubborn mother, and Gloria struggles with show business fame and long-term pain from her injury, although her recovery helps them to reconcile with her mother. Thousands of fan letters, and Emilio's steadfast determination provide her the encouragement she needs to stage a comeback. Gloria and Emilio enjoy a triumphant return at the American Music Awards.

Never mind Jay-Z and Beyonce, the Estefans were the original superstar music couple. She is one of the biggest selling singers of all time, while he's the mastermind producer behind dozens of massive names. What's better still is the story of their rise to fame, a true rags to riches tale, which is as close to the American dream as you can get. On Your Feet! is a new Jukebox musical which charts their careers and relationship, all soundtracked by Estefan's genre-defining greatest hits, including 'Rhythm is Gonna Get You' and 'Words Get in the Way', as well as some all-new tracks.
Presse : "The recipe may be familiar, but the flavor is fresh in 'On Your Feet!,' the half-formulaic, half-original and undeniably crowd-pleasing musical about the lives of Emilio and Gloria Estefan." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"A paint-by-numbers portrait can still be colorful — and a kick. Case in point: 'On Your Feet!,' a predictable but entertaining show about Gloria Estefan and her music-producer husband Emilio." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"A serviceable jukebox musical." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"'On Your Feet!'... is a fine addition to the ranks of jukebox musicals." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"Already proving a solid crowdpleaser in previews, the show features a star-making lead performance from radiant newcomer Ana Villafane." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Newcomer Ana Villafane (who originated the role in the show’s Chicago premiere) is a knockout in the leading role, the dazzling centerpiece of this flashy, splashy spectacle helmed by Jerry Mitchell." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
