Great singing, High energy, Entertaining

See it if you like Gloria Estefan and her music. The show's fun, with great dancing. It's an upbeat story that shows us the power of love.

Don't see it if You don't like the Gloria Estefan's music. I do! I saw it Nov 15, 2015. Glad it's still running!

Cliched, Indulgent, Banal, Energetic, Overrated

See it if You're a huge Gloria Estefan fan. Otherwise, it's like watching mediocre cruise ship entertainment w/a Latin theme. Plot is stale & cliché.

Don't see it if You want something more than just empty spectacle, forced enthusiasm. Audience was full of tourists texting through the show.

Great singing, Bit indulgent, Relevant, Fun, Uplifting

See it if the Estefan's music entertains you. It's a bit indulgent & "pretty-fied" story, but you can't help bopping your head & tapping your feet.

Don't see it if you don't like jukebox musicals. 2 or 3 numbers are heart-breaking & superbly delivered. The finale/encore of hits sends you home soaring.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You love Gloria Estefan, Latin music, musicals that aren't entirely all singing; linear plots, love stories, just a good old night out...

Tacky lighting, Monotonous choreography, Uneventful, Fine

See it if You're a big fan of Gloria Estefan's music although her life story is pretty boring. It plays like a concert with biopic bits interspersed.

Don't see it if You're expecting something more than a glorified Vegas/cruise ship production.

Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Delightful, Fun

See it if you like Gloria Estefan's music, you want to dance in your seat, you are looking for a good date night show, or you just want to have fun!

Don't see it if you don't like Gloria's music or you are looking for a musical with a great book. The book of this one is a little bland and lacks conflict.
