On Your Feet!, the Gloria Estefan juke box musical will return to London next summer.
The Tony nominated show received its London stage premiere at the London Coliseum this summer where it played for 12 weeks from early June 2019.
Producer Jamie Wilson said: “After our triumphant London run we are currently in exciting talks with theatre owners to bring the show back to London next year for a second summer…The love and support from the audiences in London has been amazing and we look forward to bringing this Miami party back in 2020.”
The West End production received glowing four-star reviews from critics including “a glorious night out with Gloria” (★★★★ Daily Mail), “the rhythm does really gets you” (★★★★ Guardian), “If hits like ‘Dr Beat’ and ‘Get on Your Feet’ can’t make you dance, then, no rhythm is gonna get you.” (Time Out) and “it almost blows the roof off the London Coliseum” (★★★★ Attitude).
The London production is about to embark on a UK tour which opens at the Birmingham Hippodrome, playing 3-7 September, followed by dates in Plymouth, Nottingham, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Wales, Manchester, Belfast Norwich, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Wimbledon, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Wolverhampton, Leeds, Southampton, Newcastle and Hull. The show will then return to London with dates, venue and more to be announced in due course.
The Uk tour will star current London cast members Philippa Stefani as ‘Gloria Estefan’, George Ioannides as ‘Emilio Estefan’, Madalena Alberto as ‘Gloria Fajardo’ and Karen Mann as ‘Consuelo’.
On Your Feet! is the story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan and charts their journey from its origins in Cuba to the streets of Miami and pop stardom. It features songs including “Rhythm is Gonna Get You”, “Conga” and “Get On Your Feet!”.
