Well, not quite yet. But Estefan Enterprises and the Nederlander Organization today announced a plan “to develop and produce a new Broadway show inspired by the music made famous by Gloria Estefan and her husband musician/producer and entrepreneur Emilio Estefan.”
Per a press release:
“The musical will be set in a way that tells the Estefans’ riveting life story detailing their journey all the way from Cuba to superstardom.”
Details are still sketchy, but this blogger will be very, very interested in seeing how the whole thing turns out. One thing I can tell you for sure: Should the Broadway musical come to fruition, I’m sure Mr. Estefan will produce a kick-ass DVD, which will then be properly included among Emilio Estefan Picks for Target Stores, which -as this blog accurately reported– include tons of Emilio Estefan stuff.
Are you clueless about Latino culture?
Worry no more! The Nobel-prize-winning Obama administration this week got a little closer to the creation of a National Latino Museum in Washington.
Spearheaded by Spanish tortilla empresaria Eva Longoria (aka La prieta fea) and Emilio “Lord of Miami” Estefan, a dedicated commission is working in determining how this national museum would best serve in portraying the history and culture of Latinos in the U.S.
Exuding extreme pride -and apparently with a straight face- Estefan was quoted saying: “Today is definitely a proud day […] “This could never have happened 20 years ago. We’re going to create a legacy that will last forever.”
Which is, like, great, considering museum enthusiasts will have to raise somewhere between $250 million and $500 million for the thing. But hey, aren’t Latinos the trillion-dollar opportunity?
¡Sí, se puede! ¡Sí, se puede!
