Gloria Estefan Musical “Get On Your Feet” Headed To Broadway


Cubano diva Gloria Estefan’s music and life story will premiere on Broadway next year in the musical “Get On Your Feet”. The show will tell the tale of Gloria’s beginnings as a poor Cuban immigrant, her romance with husband Emilio Estefan, her rocketing to stardom in the 80’s, and her near fatal bus crash in 1990. The musical will probably follow the format of other “songbook” musicals like Jersey Boys where the music doesn’t further the story so much as the book is there as a framework to hold up the songs. I’m sure all the big hits will be included from songs like Conga and The Words Get In The Way from her Miami Sound Machine days to the later hits. It’s rumored that sexy telenovela star William Levy wants to play Emilio. No word on who would play Gloria.

I met Gloria once in Miami, you know, because all Cubans know each other. I went to her house with my cousin who was friends with her annoying son Nayib. She was really nice and gave me a pastry, which immediately endeared me to her because I am a tubby loser. I definitely plan on going to see this show when it opens. Maybe I’ll take my mom for mother’s day. We used to rock out to Bad Boys on the way to school in the morning.
