On Your Feet!, the exhilarating original musical based on the extraordinary life of 26-time Grammy Award-winning husband-and-wife team Gloria and Emilio Estefan, features a book by Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Alexander Dinelaris and a score made up of some of the most loved and iconic songs of the past quarter-century including "Rhythm is Gonna Get You," "Conga," "Get On Your Feet," "Don't Want To Lose You Now," "1-2-3" and "Coming Out of the Dark."
"On Your Feet! is a production with a contagious thrill - you just can't help but tap your feet and sing along with the popular music," said Mark Blakeman, The McKnight Center's Marilynn and Carl Thoma Executive Director. "It's a feel-good story and we know audiences will leave the center feeling inspired by its celebratory message."
