Featured Reviews For On Your Feet


'On Your Feet!' is Gloria Estefan's joyous Broadway moment - Chicago Tribune
..the shrewd book writer Alexander Dinelaris finds conflict instead in the Estefans' insistence to the skeptical men in suits that the Sound Machine's signature hybrid of guitar, synthesizer and Latin rhythms...actually is the new sound of an America with a changed face...Dinelaris finds more tension in Gloria's long estrangement from her mother...You never doubt that all of these obstacles will be overcome by hard work and mutual affection...but one great asset of this show is that the struggles still feel emblematic of the greater immigrant struggle, which Broadway has charted as long as there has been a Broadway...In the lead role of Gloria, newcomer Ana Villafane has found her voice and emotional core since a more tentative Chicago debut. Villafane does not have the formidably rich Estefan lower register...but her interpretations of the Estefan hits are quite lovely because they feel rooted in the kind of warmth and sincerity that marks the reputation of their subject.

Emilio and Gloria Estefan musical “On Your Feet!” is fleet and fun - Washington Post
"On Your Feet!," which had its official opening Thursday night, now takes its place in the upper echelons of the jukebox genre, a club that already admitted the Tony-winning "Jersey Boys" and the more recent Broadway hit "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical." None of these qualify as great art, although they make for polished commercial properties: the breakthrough of "Jersey Boys" was in demonstrating how a clever narrative mitigates some of the form's rampant cliches. Like these earlier entries, "On Your Feet!" is a vehicle for delivery of a vibrant songbook and yet another version of that familiar American music-business story - the rise from humble origins of an artist of extraordinary gifts, who faces formidable personal challenges but by dint of will and talent emerges triumphant.
