Perez Reviews: On Your Feet

| Filed under: LatinoliciousBroadway BabiesGloria EstefanPerez Reviews

Perez is a diehard and lifelong Gloria Estefan fan! So the bar was set high for the new Broadway musical, On Your Feet, based on her life and that of her husband, Emilio.

This show not only met our expectations - it exceeded them!

On Your Feet will please the casual Gloria fan and also satisfy her most ardent admirers.

The show was masterfully crafted by Oscar-winning stage and screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris. His script weaves us between Miami and Cuba from the 70s, 60s, 80s and early 90s.

And the story that is told on the stage of the Marquis Theater could not be any more timely!

Yes, of course, the show touches on Gloria's nearly fatal bus accident. But that doesn't even happen until Act 2!

Instead, On Your Feet is a love story and an immigrant tale. It is inspiring and revealing!

There was a lot we did not know before, which shocked us! Notably: it was a surprise to learn that Gloria become estranged from her mother for two years at the height of her success, and that her sister "got in with the wrong crowd" around the same time too.

For a Cuban family to reveal those two things to the public - that's major!

And that's the kind of investment Gloria and Emilio made in this show! They are telling their story and telling its as authentically as possible!

Jerry Mitchell does a great job of adding great production value and making this show fit on Broadway.

And Ana Villafane was destined to play the role of Gloria! She is channeling her fellow Cubana up on that stage!!!

Gloria and Emilio did the orchestrations for Get On Your Feet and the music really shines in this show! It may surprise you how many ballads and midtempo songs are featured - we cried our eyes out - but the show ends with a bang, concert-style. Literally! There's a nearly 6 minute encore medley of uptempo hits to send you off on your way and raving to all your friends about how good On Your Feet is!

What an inspiration!

Nora Sandigo may not be famous for her singing, or her acting, or her talent on the field, but what makes her special is even more unique and unbelievable.

That's because this Miami momma is the legal guardian to over 800 children around the United States!

You read that right — Nora is the Executive Director of America's Fraternity, an organization that grants guardianship to minors who are left alone in America after their parents are deported.

But the most amazing part of Nora's work is that she's saved almost 1,000 lives in just six years ever since adopting her first two kids, Cecia and Ronald Soza, back in 2009.

We are simply in awe of Nora's kindness and wish her the absolute best as she continues to be the saint she so clearly is!
