The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning musical Jersey Boys returns to London’s West End, opening at the new multi-million pound reinstated Trafalgar Theatre, with a new, larger auditorium and stage (formerly known as Trafalgar Studios) on 21 April 2021, following previews from 14 April. Casting is to be announced.
For a celebration of music, life and heritage, get On Your Feet! and conga your way to see this tour.
One test of biography jukebox musicals is how much an uninitiated audience member ends up learning about the artist through the course of the show.
On Your Feet! isn’t perfect and isn’t up there with band bios like Jersey Boys or Sunny Afternoon but ultimately resistance is futile because the rhythm is gonna get you.
Overall On Your Feet! is an entertaining delight of a show. The book is hugely lacking but for fans of Gloria Estefan it’s a perfect portrayal of her life and music. Transport yourself to the Miami sun and take a journey through the lives of Gloria and Emilio.
If you love Gloria Estefan you will adore On Your Feet and if you’re not familiar with her or not necessarily a fan, go and see this and you son will be.
Never mind your eyes, your ears will adore the tour of Jersey Boys which has arrived at the Edinburgh Playhouse for a fortnight turn.
The UK premiere of On Your Feet! The Story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan will play a limited season at the London Coliseum from 14 June to 31 August 2019, following seven performances at Curve, Leicester from 3- 8 June.
