Behind the Scenes with On Your Feet!
October 3, 2017
The Story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
The Balancing Act Goes behind the scenes with the Broadway hit On Your Feet!, the musical based on the lives and music of 26-time Grammy Award-winning husband-and-wife team Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan. The musical profiles the two people who leaned on their heritage, talent and each other to make The Miami Sound Machine an international sensation.
Host Amber Milt sits down with the Estefans to hear about how their love story became a smash Broadway hit. As the show begins its national tour, we meet Christie Prades, the Miami native who is playing Gloria. Amber and Christie tour Miami and belt out a few of the show’s iconic tunes.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
