Get On Your Feet!

I went to opening night of Get On Your Feet  which is Gloria Estefan's Broadway musical about her life story. After playing in New York for two years, it's now on tour playing in DC for the month of January then traveling around the country. You'll be dancing in your seat, smiling and singing along to all the songs. The vibrant show is pure joy and my favorite musical to date! It was nominated for a Tony award for Best Choreography. Expect to hear all her classic songs like Rhythm is Going to Get You, 1-2-3, Dr. Beat, Conga, Get On Your Feet, Turn the Beat Around.

At the Kennedy Center honors a couple weeks the honorees were LL Cool J, Gloria Estefan, Lionel Richie and dancer Carmen de Lavallade. It’s an award given to people who have achieved artist excellence. For Gloria’s segment the cast of her Broadway musical sang a medley of her songs, you can see the clip here.

 I recently read an interesting article titled Why So Many D.C. Plays End Up On Broadway.
