ON YOUR FEET! The musical is a story of rhythm and resilience.

It covers the lives of Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio Estefan to and through success, and tells a story of setbacks and love. The foundation is built upon music and at its core is the legendary Miami Sound Machine.

We sat down with Jorge Casas and Clay Ostwald of the original members of the Miami Sound Machine, who help bring all these iconic songs to the Broadway stage. We talk about the tour and the transition of pop-Latin-jazz to theater, the accident that changed everything, and the recovery and success of “cross over” Cuban American Music that Gloria, Emilio and the Miami Sound Machine brought to the world.

The show is currently playing at the Boston Opera House through April 29th, 2018.

    I worked on the show in Detroit and it was so special to know that some of the band was from Miami Sound Machine, and, by the way, they were all nice.

    so used to seeing Gloria in concert for 25 years .. to see actors playing her and the Miami Sound Machine its like I am used to the real thing, but I give the people who played them credit.. but if you were there for the real thing there is no comparison.. only Gloria is the real thing and the Miami Sound Machine. Fortunate to know Edwin Bonilla because of FB...We have never met yet but a concert will come and we will get to meet.. It has been years
