".....While the book for On Your Feet! may be slight, with such huge Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine hits as "Conga," "1-2-3," "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You," and the title tune, and an excellent cast and creative elements, this is a fresh, energetic, and hugely crowd-pleasing show that beautifully portrays the hard-fought road to success and the deep relationship of this famous couple." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)

".. "Writer Alexander Dinelaris’ book is heavily fragmented in the story’s telling, and the conflicts with a band trying to get its musical career off the ground are not altogether that remarkable. The accents, the immigration background, and the Miami setting certainly make things appear fresh, but the conflicts themselves can’t overcome the notion of familiarity... It’s in the second half with the conflicts of the horrendous crash and the relationship with Gloria’s mother plus the reasons behind the woman’s constant refusal to support her daughter’s career where the show finds its own individual footing."...." -David Appleford, Valley Screen and Stage (click here to read the complete review)
