After roughly a year and a half on Broadway, On Your Feet! has set an official Broadway closing date. Yesterday, the production’s official Instagram posted a photo with the caption “We will play our final Broadway performance on 8/20/2017. Catch us during our final weeks before we conga on tour!”
On Your Feet! is a Musical based on the lives of Gloria and Emilio Estefan, featuring some of their most popular songs. Garnering fantastic reviews after opening, the show thrived on Broadway for multiple months. However, the show’s closing is likely due to a slow in recent earnings. “The usual mid-January slowdown gave the Broadway box office a chill last week, as a reduced slate and a drop in traffic precipitated tumbles at most shows,” according to a January article from Variety.com. “The 18% dropoff at “On Your Feet!” put the show at just 44% of its gross potential for the week and 58% of its overall audience capacity”
Although On Your Feet! will end it’s Broadway performances, the vivacious Musical will continue it’s story on a national tour beginning September 2017. Check here to learn buy tickets for the tour!
