"a vibrant Spanish-language premiere that plays not like a reinvention but rather the staging that was always intended... dreamlike diversions" (The Washington Post)

"The musical wastes no time captivating its audience... cathartic storytelling... strong and compelling... poignant performances that transcended any potential language barriers... immaculately crafted" (DC Theater Arts)

"the rhythm is gonna get you... the energy is undeniable... Just feel the rhythm, don’t fight it, and shake your body to that conga beat" (MetroWeekly)

"it moves with the intensity of a prowling lion and catches you unaware with upbeat music, choreography that is super-charged to the max and dramatic scenes of poignancy and sensitivity" (Broadway World DC)

Watch DC Mayor Muriel Bowser proclaim May 7 as the Emilio & Gloria Estefan Day in Washington, DC!
