Maria Torres Talks with On Your Feet! Director Jerry Mitchell About Inviting Everyone into the Emilio and Gloria Estefan Story
On this episode, Host Maria Torres has a conversation with Two-Time Tony Award® Winner, On Your Feet! Director Jerry Mitchell about working on the Emilio and Gloria Estefan story to Broadway. “What was wonderful for me working on OYF!, I wasn’t Latino, so I had to make sure the story would resonate with people who don’t understand the Spanish language and that every family could enjoy the same experience,” says Mitchell. He shares how the Musical evolved from its Chicago debut to the Broadway stage and credits his team’s collective
participation toward the “best idea in the room” to continually improving the production.
