Gloria and Emilio Estefan's On Your Feet! heading for London Coliseum next summer.

Gloria and Emilio Estefan's smash-hit musical On Your Feet! is coming  to London direct from Broadway for a strictly limited season at London's Coliseum from 14th June- 31st August 2019, after completing seven performances at the Curve, Leicester from 3rd -8th June 2019

On your Feet! is being produced by Jamie Wilson and Gavin Kalin with Colin Ingram and Peter Kane for Intheatre, Marc David Levine and Leicester Curve  Theatre.

Winner of 26 Grammy awards, Gloria Estefan has sold over 100 million records worldwide. Emilio Estefan is a founding member of the pioneering Miami Sound Machine, who created a brand new Latin crossover sound – fusing infectious Cuban rhythms with American pop and disco.

ON YOUR FEET! is the  true love story of the Estefans and their journey from  Cuba, on to the streets of Miami and finally to international superstardom featuring some of the most iconic pops songs of the era, including ‘Rhythm is Gonna Get You’, ‘Conga’, ‘Get On Your Feet’, ‘Don’t Want To Lose You Now’ and ‘1-2-3’.  The show also features an original song called If I Never Got to Tell You, with lyrics by Gloria Estefan and music by her daughter Emily.

It will be directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde), with choreography by Olivier Award-winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and book by Academy Award® winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman).
  
Gloria Estefan said: “The UK 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 UK. 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 UK audiences to watch, enjoy and have fun at On Your Feet!
