Music is Just Part of the Story in On Your Feet!, the Gloria and Emilio Estefan Broadway Musical

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, November 6, 2018 – Of course On Your Feet!, the hit Broadway musical based on the life of Grammy®-winning power couple Gloria and Emilio Estefan, is full of great music. But when the show comes to Walton Arts Center Dec. 4-9, audiences will also connect with their love story, admire their perseverance in the face of adversity and celebrate their comeback.

Gloria Estefan has sold more than 100 million records and sold out stadiums around the world. Together the Estefans have won 26 Grammy Awards, and in 2018 they received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song – but their music is only half the story.

On Your Feet!  follows the Estefans’ journey from Cuba to superstardom, set to their chart-topping, smash hits including “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “1-2-3,” “Get On Your Feet,” “Mi Tierra,” Don’t Want To Lose You Now” and “Reach,” in addition to an original song written by Gloria and her daughter, Emily Estefan.

On Your Feet! is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray) and choreographed by Tony Award nominee & Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis), with an original book by Academy Award®-winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Bodyguard Musical).
