Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You like entertainment based on true story.appealing to people of all ages and nationalities.

Also Saw in initial previews

Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you like Gloria Estefan's music, you like Latin music/dance, you want something light & fluffy.

Don't see it if you want great acting (though there are some good performances by the supporting cast), great writing, great story. It's a jukebox musical.

75
Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic

See it if you want light entertainment. Ana Villafane is great. The atmosphere is fun and party-like.

Don't see it if you want serious stuff. Josh Segarra's singing is disappointing.

90
Entertaining, Great staging, Great dancing, Lively, Danceable music

See it if you like bio musicals. Ms. Villafane is terrific--singing and dancing up a storm. You need not be a fan of Ms. Estefan. I wasn't.

Don't see it if you do not like to shake your . . .

80
Delightful, Entertaining, Predictable, Upbeat, Fun

See it if you enjoy high energy music & dancing, & like plots about the fight & success of the underdog. This also has a very strong ensemble.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy Latin music or want an unpredictable plot. There are slow moments but for the most part, it's well-paced.

75
Husband & wife team triumph, Entertaining, Great acting, Latin pop numbers a la mamma mia

See it if If U know Gloria Estefan's music & her story then U MUST-SEE it on stage. 2nd act is stronger dramatically than the 1st, gr8 BIG prod. nos.

Don't see it if Cuban-American history and crossover latin-pop music isn't of at least minor interest. Won't win over new fans as much as rekindle old ones!

80
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing

69
Entertaining, Indulgent, Straightforward

See it if you love the music -- the concert scenes are fabulous and the lead actress is a fantastic facsimile of Gloria Estefan.

Don't see it if you expect a great book & great design - the story is linear and safe, and the production design for the non-concert scenes is half-assed.

85
Clever, Great staging, Original, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if If you're a fan of Gloria E and the Sound Machine, Latin music, or great singing and dancing with flashy staging.

Don't see it if You really dislike Gloria E. It's mostly her music, so if you don't like it on the radio, you won't like it on the stage.
