Gloria Estefan Musical ‘On Your Feet’ Headed to Broadway

Gloria Estefan will join Carole King, Janis Joplin, Tupac Shakur, and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons on the list of recording stars whose music has inspired a Broadway show. On Your Feet, a new musical based on Estefan’s life and career, is headed for the New York stage with plans for a premiere in early 2015.

In addition, plans are in the works for a reality TV series to follow Estefan as she searches for the right actresses to play her as a teen and a young woman in her 20s. The musical will be bilingual and cover the singer’s early years in Miami and her near-fatal tour bus accident in 1990.

Known as the Queen of Latin Pop, Gloria Estefan has won three Grammys and four Latin Grammys and is regarded as the one of the most successful Latin crossover artists. She has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and her biggest hits include “The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “1,2,3” and “Words Get in the Way.”
