Gloria and Emilio Estefan musical ‘On Your Feet!' details NYC plans for Broadway run in fall 2015

NEW YORK (AP) – Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio hope to have the musical based on their life dancing on Broadway next year.

Producers said Tuesday “On Your Feet!” will premiere in Chicago next summer before landing at a Nederlander theater in the fall of 2015.

Jerry Mitchell, who directed “Kinky Boots,” will helm the show, with Sergio Trujillo choreographing. The story will be written by Alexander Dinelaris.

The Estefans were both born in Cuba and together became musical luminaries in Spanish and English, winning Grammy Awards and fans across the U.S. with crossover hits like “The Rhythm is Going To Get You,” “Conga” and “Words Get in the Way,” in addition to helping the careers of other artists including Shakira, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jon Secada.
