Gloria Estefan has sold over 100 million records and sold out stadiums around the world. Emilio and Gloria Estefan together have won 26 Grammy Awards® – but their music is only half the story. From the heart of Havana to the streets of Miami came a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the music industry had ever seen. On Your Feet! is the new Broadway musical that follows the Estefan’s journey to superstardom set to their chart-topping smash hits including “Rhythm is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “1-2-3,” “Get On Your Feet,” and a new original song written for the musical by Gloria and her daughter Emily Estefan, “If I Never Get to Tell You.” On Your Feet! was recorded LIVE at the Marquis Theater.
From agit-prop punks, through anarchic dance music, to settling into rebel folkies, Chumbawamba have maintained a political stance of anti-capitalism and rebellion, with a willingness to stick two fingers up at anyone they disapprove of. So the current Government is just too easy a target (shooting fish in a barrel, anyone?). (…) Throughout the music is wonderful – a lovely pastiche of the music hall tradition with folk tinges. But it’s the words it hinges on. As such, this is a curate’s egg – parts of it are excellent.
…The Producers' (Original Broadway Cast Recording) is an excellent representation of the show, with key bits of dialogue from the book between the songs. It's the next best thing to seeing the actual play.
