A Gloria Estefan Musical Is Heading to Broadway, Along With an Accompanying Reality Show

1 minute read

A group of women will be turning the beat around on a new reality show in which they’ll vie for the chance to play Gloria Estefan on Broadway.

The bilingual musical On Your Feet will debut next year, the New York Daily News reports. In the meantime, a reality show will aim to find the best actresses to play the legendary singer. Producers hope to find three women to play her at various stages of her life.

“It’s going to be daunting, but I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to be able to do it and so much fun to be a part of the processes,” Estefan told the Daily News.

On Your Feet will cover Estefan’s early years in Miami, her recovery from a near fatal accident in 1990 and her long career as a performer. Get on your feet if you’re as excited about this as we are.
