On Your Feet!
The incredible Broadway show, ON YOUR FEET! is making its way to South Florida, playing soon at the Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre in Coral Gables. It features a cast comprising members of the original production well as touring cast members and local professional actors. It tells the story of the power couple Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, including their love story, life, and careers.
The music and sound effects are being performed by the incredibly talented Miami Sound Machine, the band founded by Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Last month, Gloria Estefan dropped by a rehearsal to surprise the cast and crew!
What to expect from GET ON YOUR FEET
Get on your feet tells the Esteban story from an intimate perspective, sharing their love story, how they met, and how this power duo came to be. It dives past publicly known narratives and records gets into the couple's lives, talents, and personalities, and touches on the one thing that brought them together: music.
With incredibly talented performers bringing this story to life, it's one of the most anticipated live performances that Miami will see this year. After all, it's always refreshing to see such stories make their way back home, with talent like Claudia Yanez, acting in the story, David Arisco as the artistic director, Andy Señor as director, Natalie Caruncho as associate director and choreographer, and Clay Ostwald as musical director.
Ostwald has also been a long-time member of the Miami Sound Machine and has been integral to the show, and along with Señor, Caruncho, and Arisco, was part of the original Broadway production too.
Get ready for an emotionally moving performance featuring some incredible music, powerful storytelling, and importnat elements of the Estefans' life. Get on your feet is going to a treat to the eyes, ears, and soul.
In fact, this couldn't be at a better time as a massive mural for the duo was just unveiled in Little Havana.
