“On Your Feet!” Opens In Chicago

The story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan in musical form — i’m talking about “On Your Feet!” — has opened in a pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago. The reviews are very promising. Chris Jones, of the Chicago Tribune, writes: ‘ere is what surprises, and what should sustain this show once it opens on Broadway in the fall, hopefully with its current weaknesses fixed: The bookwriter Alexander Dinelaris, the choreographer Sergio Trujillo and the director Jerry Mitchell have, together, not only avoided feathery excess and nostalgic 1980s schmaltz, they’ve created a show with a strikingly high amount of emotional intimacy.’ Can’t wait to see this production in New York.
