Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray), On Your Feet! tells the story of two people who - through an unwavering dedication to one another and their pursuit of the American dream - showcased their talent, their music and their heritage to the world in a remarkable rise to global superstardom. Set to Gloria's chart-topping, smash hits such as "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You," "Conga," "1-2-3," "Get On Your Feet," "Don't Want To Lose You Now," and "Coming Out Of The Dark," in addition to new music penned by the Estefans, the musical will be choreographed by four-time Drama Desk nominee Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis) with a book by Academy Award nominee Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman film, The Bodyguard Musical).
Ana Villafañe will make her Broadway debut as Gloria Estefan opposite Josh Segarra as Emilio Estefan. On Your Feet! opens on Broadway on Thursday, November 5, 2015, with preview performances beginning Monday, October 5, 2015 at the Marquis Theatre in New York City.
