Gloria Estefan Will Be “On Her Feet” On Broadway Soon Enough



It looks like Gloria Estefan is going to “Turn The Beat Around”  on the great white way in no time. Her musical On Your Feet is slated to hit the stage in 2015, receiving its Broadway debut after much anticipation, reports Huffington Post.

According to Huffington Post, the musical will be many things It will cover the icons dance music career, will cover Estefan’s story from her beginning in Miami to the life changing 1990 tour bus accident, and will even be bilingual.

On Your Feet will also be the basis of an upcoming reality show where a series of judges including Estefan will cast two Gloria’s, one to play her in her teens years, another in her young adulthood. Skeptics, do know this has worked very well in the past for productions of a series of musicals including Grease (Laura Osnes anyone?) Legally Blonde The Musical, and The Sound of Music.

Estefan said of the pending Broadway show, “It’s going to be daunting,but I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to be able to do it and so much fun to be a part of the process.”

Plans to go forth with the musical were initially announced by Gloria and Emilio Estefan in February of 2013, and have released a statement sharing that they are “very excited to share this story, which is based on hope, determination and the belief that with hard work and passion.”

Fingers crossed that Estefan’s Broadway feats will bring her back to Glee. We can dream can’t we?
