Looks like Gloria Estefan’s rhythm is finally going to get to the Great White Way. Her long-in-the-works bilingual musical On Your Feet will likely debut in 2015. According to the New York Daily News, the main character of the tuner, based on Estefan herself, will be cast by a reality TV show. There will be three Glorias to play the Cuban-American superstar at various ages.
On Your Feet tells the tale of Estefan's early years in Miami and how she recovered from a broken back after almost dying in an accident in 1990. The pop icon admitted: “It’s going to be daunting, but I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to be able to do it and so much fun to be a part of the processes.”
Estefan and her husband Emilio Estefan were both born in Cuba and together became musical hitmakers in Spanish and English, winning Grammy Awards and fans across the world with hits like "The Rhythm is Gonna Get You," "Conga," "Words Get in the Way," "1, 2, 3" and the Oscar-nominated “Music Of My Heart." They've also helped shape the careers of other artists including Shakira, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.
