Gloria Estefan musical ‘On Your Feet’ makes Bass Hall debut
“I hope Gloria likes that song, cuz she’s gonna be singin’ it the rest of her life!” cracks a record producer in On Your Feet, the jukebox musical based on the music of Miami Sound Machine and its founders, Gloria and Emilio Estefan. And when you are reminded of the catalogue of their catchy hits — “1-2-3,” “Conga,” “Turn the Beat Around” — you are glad she was willing to sing them all a lot. After a run this time last year in Dallas, On Your Feet makes its Cowtown debut this week as part of the Broadway at the Bass Series.
