At the end of 2015 I began to hear rumors of a new Broadway show. It was the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan (with their music as the soundtrack, of course) and how they rose to fame. It was fittingly called ‘On Your Feet!’
ON YOUR FEET! is the inspiring true story about heart, heritage and two people who believed in their talent–and each other–to become an international sensation: Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
I had friends who flew to New York for the Broadway opening at the Marquis Theatre and I (jealously) followed along on social media. Apparently the actual world premiere of the show was earlier that year in Chicago. (I may or may not have been obsessively reading about the show, but that’s not important right now.)
I kept thinking – wishing – hoping – that the show would make it to LA after it closed on Broadway last year. When Gloria announced there would be a TOUR, I felt like I’d won the lotto!
*hopes, wishes, and prays they would make it to LA*
Well, my prayers – wishes – hopes – seem to be manifesting before my very eyes.
People, ‘On Your Feet!’ is coming to the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles next month!
*does a crazy-happy salsa dance*
From July 6th through July 29th, 2018 the show will be playing close to my area code and I’m super excited. (The story gets better from here.)
My friends at Al Punto Advertising contacted me (because Cuban blogger on the west coast) and wondered if I was interested in covering the show?
Would I like to go to the LA Gala celebrating the opening of the show?
Would I like to walk the red carpet and meet Gloria and Emilio Estefan and the rest of the LA Cast?
Picture me stupidly repeating, “Wait. What?” into the phone, and then as the realization that I was going to get to attend the show as a VIP began to dawn, I begin to nervous laugh like a crazy maniac before finally bursting into happy tears.
So, I’m here to share my happy news – that I’ll be attending ‘On Your Feet!’ in LA in July and I’ll be wearing high heels and makeup like a real grown up as I walk (or maybe lead a conga line?) down the red carpet.
I know. Shut up.
I’ll be attending the show with my favorite escort, of course.
So, to all my LA friends, will I be seeing you there?? Let me sweeten that up a bit for you…

I hope to see you there. I’ll be the one in the high heels and makeup chasing Gloria around the red carpet, singing, “O-E-O-E! O-E-O-O-AH!”
Ya tu sabes.
