Saw this show in Chicago, the only bad thing is that the male lead is weak in the vocal department. Otherwise the show is good.
On Your Feet is a musical hit. Everyone was very entertaining. The Jewish Musical Producer was exceptional. His timing was right on. What a talent! I expect to see him have a big career.
HATED IT. Just hated it.
Living on Long Island, I've seen just about every musical that has made it to Broadway in the past 30 years. And each time I am in awe of the tremendous talent of even the most minor roles. But not last night, 4/8/16. What the heck was the casting team thinking to put such a weak voice and hideous acting ability in the role of Emilio Estefan? He was a latin stereotype, almost a parody of the Cuban male. His voice has that horrible, sing-songy inflection with which puerto rican and cuban men deliver their sentences, but to have it accompany every single line uttered in over two hours, including the simple YES and NO, was enough to want me leave during the performance. And that monotone gravelly voice.. oh my God, HE WAS AWFUL. Thankfully, the roles of Gloria Estefan was delivered by an engaging, dynamic actress who sounded just like Gloria Estefan as she delivered her spoken lines and songs we all know. The dancers were terrific as was the show band that provided a visual and sound backdrop throughout much of the show. Had thew horrible lead actor been removed, saving us all from also having to hear him songs that were in his vocal range of five notes, then I would have given the show four stars. But I am very sorry to say that actor killed it for me. I noticed a few audience members leaving before the show was over as well. Maybe they were thinking the same thing.
