On Your Feet!



“On Your Feet!” has us on ours. It’s a really feel good show about the life of Gloria Estefan, with “Conga” being the centerpiece, closing Act I and opening Act II. The audience is up and dancing with the cast (a la “Mamma Mia”) at intermission. Ann Villafane is terrific as Gloria, both singing and acting. Unfortunately, at the performance we saw, Josh Segarra, who plays Emilio, showed great acting ability but was very weak as a singer. A great treat is young (8-year-old?) Eduardo Hernandez who steals the dancing part of the show with his amazing skill. If you liked the Miami Sound Machine music, you’ll like the show. We did.
