Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you like Gloria Estefan / Miami Sound Machine music. You'll get a lot of it, all the classics.

Don't see it if you expect a fast-paced high-energy show. It tells the story of the Estefans through music, so some slower moments are expected.

The Telegraph (UK)

But incongruously residing at the home of the English National Opera, with the cast bopping and twisting up on stage at a safe remove, it’s toe-curling even before we get to the first-half climax and an attempted mass conga in the stalls.

But the times the show actually ignites with real passion and power is during the rousing upbeat songs...The cast is energetically led by Christie Prades as a fiery Gloria and a tall, handsome George Ioannides as a suitably dreamy Emilio.

If the overall effect is oddly pedestrian, the details are good... The megamix finale got the crowd on its feet, but I remained in my seat.

...the best moment of the evening is the encore medley of hits, when the show throws off the shackles of traditional narrative and instead lets the whole ensemble cut loose, interact with the band, and invite the audience to join in.

Kinky Boots director Jerry Mitchell and book writer Alexander Dinelaris do a very decent job with this bio-musical, charting the Estefans’ lives...But there’s something a bit skewed about the pacing of Dinelaris’ book.

The London Evening Standard

This is a script of epic dullness, by which one is usually bored and occasionally bewildered, as births, marriages and deaths all happen without any explanation.

...it's easy to see why On Your Feet! was a solid Broadway and touring hit. It will undoubtedly make a lot of people pretty ecstatic over here too. Resistance is futile, that rhythm really is gonna get you.

Christie Prades is superb as the Cuban-American singer in a rags-to-riches story charged with sociopolitical significance.
