On Your Feet! - London Coliseum
The West End has a great history with jukebox musicals, welcoming some of the biggest shows in the world that offer a celebratory performance honouring some of the best known recording artists.
The London Coliseum has been home to them as well (such as the recent Bat Out Of Hell that since transferred to the Dominion Theatre) and it gets-in on the action once again in 2019 as it welcomes this hit Broadway show On Your Feet! Just as West End hit Tina: The Tina Turner Musical celebrates the life and career of its subject matter, On Your Feet! tells the story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan, with gripping results.
That story follows their initial meeting in Cuba and continues as they head to the United States and find success, not only with the band Miami Sound Machine but as a husband-and-wife duo. They released a range of popular songs, many of which make it into this musical, such as Don’t Wanna Lose You, Get On Your Feet, You’ll Be Mine (Party Time), Here We Are and Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, amongst many others.
The show has some top talent working to bring it to the stage, so it is no wonder it has had such success in other locations prior to its West End premiere. It was first seen Chicago in 2015 before transferring to Broadway, and along the way it has earned many admirers, who have loved the memorable songs and compelling book from Alexander Dinelaris.
Recent years have seen the Coliseum opening its doors to more musicals, joining a line-up that usually includes operas and ballets, and prior to On Your Feet! audiences have enjoyed Bat Out Of Hell, Carousel and Sweeney Todd, with 2019 also bringing a brief run of Notre Dame de Paris.
On Your Feet! then runs at the London Coliseum St Martin’s Lane from Friday 14th June 2019.
