On Your Feet! is ready to get up and make it happen! The Gloria and Emilio Estefan musical will begin Broadway performances on October 5, 2015 at the Marquis Theatre. Opening night is set for November 5. The tuner will premiere at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago from June 2 through July 5 of next year.
Directed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, On Your Feet! will feature a book by Alexander Dinelaris. Both well-known tunes and new music penned by the Estafans will be used to tell a story inspired by their life and musical legacy. Their hits include "The Rhythm is Gonna Get You," "Conga," "Words Get in the Way," "1, 2, 3" and the Oscar-nominated “Music Of My Heart."
The production has launched an international casting search, #ReachGloria, giving performers from around the world the chance to audition for all parts in the musical by submitting videos. There will also be two September open calls: one in New York and one in the Estefans’ home city of Miami.
