A Day With On Your Feet!'s Glorious Gloria Estefan, Ana Villafañe

Roam the backstage halls of the Marquis Theatre with Broadway's coolest superstar.

Eight times a week, Ana Villafañe dons her fabulous array of costumes and full-bodied wigs to become Gloria Estefan in On Your Feet! at the Marquis Theatre. The actress carries the new biomusical on her shoulders, singing and dancing to Estefan's greatest hits for enthusiastic Broadway audiences. Yet, she found time in her busy schedule to take TheaterMania backstage and show us the ropes of how things work at Estefan central. Take a look at our day with Villafañe, who, coconut water in hand, introduces us to a few of her costars, demos some onstage maneuvers, and practices her ugly face — like all divas do.
