The UK premiere of On Your Feet! will take place at the London Coliseum in 2019.
Directed by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Kinky Boots), On Your Feet! tells the true story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan, charting their journey from its origins in Cuba, onto the streets of Miami and then to international superstardom.
The musical will feature some of the pair’s best known songs including ‘Rhythm is Gonna Get You’, ‘Conga’, ‘Get On Your Feet’, ‘Don’t Want To Lose You Now’ and ‘1-2-3’.
Talking about the news Producer Jamie Wilson said: “After watching On Your Feet! on Broadway three years ago, we immediately knew we wanted to bring the show to the UK. The story of how Emilio and Gloria brought their music from Cuba to Miami and the world is truly inspirational. We can’t wait for UK audiences to watch, enjoy and have fun at On Your Feet!”
Before the musical arrives at the London Coliseum from the 14th June 2019, there will be seven performances of the show at the Curve, Leicester from 3rd to the 8th June 2019.

Talking about bringing the show to the UK Gloria Estefan said: “The UK has not only been an important source of beautiful music for our world, but has also played an integral role in my own personal musical history. To have our life story playing on the stage of the iconic London Coliseum is a dream I could never have imagined coming true. I am thrilled and excited beyond words!”
