The first concert I ever attended was Gloria Estefan’s Into the Light tour with my Mother and my Grandmother. I was about 11 years old at the time and the tour took place inside the Orlando Arena. The concert was Gloria’s first after her bus accident in Pennsylvania where she suffered a severe back injury. When I was invited to On Your Feet! just steps down the road from the new arena at The Dr. Phillips Center I immediately invited my Mother. Unfortunately, my Grandmother has passed away, but she would have been singing and dancing for days after seeing this show.
On Your Feet The Gloria Estefan Musical
On Your Feet is a high energy musical telling the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan. You’ll learn about little Glorita’s childhood, teen years, and of course meeting Emilio. I had no idea she received a bigger contract than Madonna, for example, so there are some unveilings in there. Everything leads up to her accidents and recovery and will bring you to tears time and time again.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you will sing and dance! On Your Feet is playing at Dr. Phillips Center today thru October 22nd. https://tickets.drphillipscenter.org/production/5008
