Official Press Release from Actors’ Playhouse at Miracle Theatre
Due to current COVID-19 conditions, Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre has postponed rehearsals and its production of ON YOUR FEET! two weeks later than originally scheduled. The company will now celebrate the Miami engagement of the hit Broadway musical from February 9 – March 6, 2022.
ON YOUR FEET! is the inspiring true story about heart, heritage and two people who believed in their talent—and each other—to become an international sensation: Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Now their story will arrive onstage, back in the couple’s hometown of Miami, in an original production that will celebrate its South Florida Regional Premiere at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre.
Gloria Estefan has sold over 100 million records and sold-out stadiums around the world. Emilio and Gloria Estefan together have won 26 GRAMMY Awards® – but their music is only half of the story. From the heart of Havana to the streets of Miami came a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the music industry had ever seen. ON YOUR FEET! is the new Broadway musical that follows the Estefans’ journey to superstardom, set to their chart-topping, smash hits, including “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “1-2-3,” “Get On Your Feet,” “Mi Tierra,” Don’t Want To Lose You Now,” and “Reach,” in addition to an original song written by Gloria and her daughter Emily Estefan.
This Actors’ Playhouse production of ON YOUR FEET! overseen by artistic director David Arisco will be directed by Andy Señor Jr. (Associate Director of ON YOUR FEET! on Broadway, Netherlands, and UK West End Productions) and associate directed/choreographed by Natalie Caruncho (member of the original Broadway company of ON YOUR FEET! and Associate Choreographer of the National Tour which she also performed in), with an original book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Bodyguard Musical). A complete cast that features members of the original Broadway production, national touring cast and professionals from our South Florida community, along with musicians from the Miami Sound Machine will be announced, soon.
ON YOUR FEET! will now preview on February 9 and 10, with the official opening night on Friday, February 11. Showtimes are Wednesdays – Saturdays at 8 p.m., with matinees on Saturdays at 2 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through March 6.
