"On Your Feet" musical playing at the Overture Center

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Broadway musical about Gloria & Emilio Estefan hits Madison this week.

"On Your Feet!" is now playing at the Overture Center. Madison is the only Wisconsin stop for the tour. The musical follows the love story and careers of Gloria and Emilio Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

Star Christie Prades, who plays Gloria, and Clay Ostwald, who is the music director and an original member of Miami Sound Machine, came on Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the show.

Prades says the audience members really get "on their feet" during the performance. "We give them all the permission to stand up, to interact with us, to make them feel like they're part of this." Ostwald adds, "There is a Conga line in the audience!"

Ostwald says the musical includes a lot of hits from the band's career, but also some original music that helps tell the love story of Gloria and Emilio.

Prades adds, "As they develop their music career, they develop their love too and they fall in love through the music, I think. Everyone gets to see a private diary into their lives and you get to kind of see a more human side to them, not just these global superstars."
