After wrapping up its Broadway premiere last year, On Your Feet! The Story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan will play a limited season at the London Coliseum June 14–August 31, 2019.
Prior to the London run, there will be seven performances at Curve, Leicester June 3–8.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
On Your Feet! tells the love story of Emilio and Gloria and charts their musical journey from its origins in Cuba, onto the streets of Miami, and finally to international superstardom. The bio-musical ran on Broadway for two years, playing for over 750 performances. It is currently on a two-year U.S. tour, while a production in Holland continues until August.
In a statement, Gloria Estefan said, “The U.K. has not only been an important source of beautiful music for our world, but has also played an integral role in my own personal musical history. To have our life story playing on the stage of the iconic London Coliseum is a dream I could never have imagined coming true. I am thrilled and excited beyond words.”
Producer Jamie Wilson added, “After watching On Your Feet! on Broadway three years ago, we immediately knew we wanted to bring the show to the U.K. The story of how Emilio and Gloria brought their music from Cuba to Miami and the world is truly inspirational. We can’t wait for U.K. audiences to watch, enjoy and have fun at On Your Feet!”
On Your Feet! is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo and book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris.
