MIAMI (WSVN) - A Broadway show based on the lives of Gloria and Emilio Estefan is taking center stage in Miami.
The red carpet was rolled out for the Estefans’s Broadway musical “On Your Feet,” Friday.
The musical stars Cuban-American actress Christie Prades as the one and only Gloria Estefan. TV actor Mauricio Martinez portrays musician and producer Emilio Estefan.
The Broadway show follows the Estefans’s journey to stardom with chart-topping smash hits.
Gloria told 7News that Miamians will relate to the show. “It’s a show that’s going to represent a lot of people here in Miami,” she said. “It’s not just Emilio’s and my story, but it’s the story of a lot of people from this city.”
Prades, who’s a Miami native is happy to bring the story to the 305. “It’s a story about all of us here in Miami,” she said. “I’m pumped to be a Miami girl and to be bringing this story to life here in our hometown.”
“It’s thrilling and exciting. It’s a great honor to portray such an iconic character as Emilio,” Martinez said, “as, of course, Gloria, the princess of Latin Pop, and it’s great to be here.”
“On Your Feet” runs through Oct. 15 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
