"There should be dancing in the streets! There has never been anything like this on Broadway." Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Fela!, directed and choregraphed by Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones, welcomes audiences into the extravagant, decadent and rebellious world of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), the musical explores Kuti's controversial life as artist, political activist and revolutionary musician.
