On Your Feet is a dazzling new musical fresh from the talented pens of the Estafans, namely Gloria Estafan, the Cuban-American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman of Miami Sound Machine fame, and her equally talented husband Emilio. Fresh from Broadway, it's a totally amazing musical... and now it's over here, ready to rock theatreland with a collection of beautiful tunes and a real-life love story.
What's the plot? On Your Feet weaves the true tale of Gloria and Emilio's love, following them from their origins in Cuba, through their years on the streets of Miami, to international stardom. It's exhilarating stuff, and incudes lots of the band's best-loved hits: Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, Get On Your Feet, Don’t Want To Lose You Now, 1-2-3 and plenty more.
The show is beautifully, joyfully directed by the two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, who delighted London with Kinky Boots and Legally Blonde. The choreography comes from an Olivier Award-winner, the talented Sergio Trujillo, who helped make Jersey Boys such a massive hit. And the book comes from another Academy Award winner, Alexander Dinelaris, who was involved in the magical Birdman.
Gloria Estafan herself has won an astonishing 26 Grammy awards and has sold more than 100 million records across the world. Emilio Estefan is a founding member of the Miami Sound Machine. Together their unique fusion of Latin, pop and disco changed a generation. Whether or not you danced the night away to Miami Sound Machine tunes in the '80s and '90s, you'll love it.
Who is this show for?
Great tunes and a fabulous story mean this musical suits anyone over the age of four who loves musical theatre at its best. This is a family-friendly show, but there's a little bit of strong language. If you want to bring the kids, exercise your own judgement. Children under four aren't allowed in. We're looking at a strictly limited season, so grab tickets for the show at the London Coliseum as soon as they're available!

Definitely get on your feet at the end of this show. The singing dancing and music were perfectly executed. Loved the costumes, I went with a big Gloria fan and came out with every intention of getting a CD. We were on level 4 balcony and had a good view and the sound was perfect, it is very high up but it did say this on the website so no complaints.
