A new musical tracing Gloria Estefan’s life will hit the Broadway stage next year.
Previews for On Your Feet! will begin in October and the production will open on 5 November.
Prior to the Broadway run, the show will open at Chicago’s Oriental Theater in Illinois for a five-week summer run from 2 June.
The musical will chronicle Estefan and her husband Emilio’s journey from Cuba to Miami, Florida and her rise to superstardom. The show will be directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo, the man behind the dance steps on Jersey Boys and Memphis.
Announcing the latest news about the much-anticipated musical, producers have also launched an international online talent search for wannabes to fill roles in the production, while open casting calls will begin next month in New York and Miami.
Estefan says, “Finding the right performers to tell our story on the Broadway stage is the most important step in this project. Our own journey together started in Miami, a city that has been such an inspiration to us both, and it only felt right that the city be a cornerstone of our search for the next generation of bright talent.”
