WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fela! returns to Broadway! A spectacularly inspiring and triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, Fela! is based on the life of Fela Kuti, who created Afrobeat - a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies - and mixed these sensual eclectic rhythms with simple but powerful lyrics that openly assailed Nigeria's corrupt and oppressive dictatorships. Featuring many of Fela Kuti's most captivating songs performed by a combined cast of the original Broadway production and the Royal National Theatre production all under Bill T. Jones's visionary staging, Fela! reveals Kuti's life as an artist and human rights activist and celebrates his pioneering music in what has been hailed as one of the most exciting, exhilarating and vital stage experiences in recent memory.
