Fela!

Direct from broadway!
“There should be dancing in the streets.”
- The New York Times

First, you’ll feel it in your feet.
Then you’ll feel it in your soul .
That’s the undeniable power of FELA!
Legendary Nigerian Fela Kuti was a musical dynamo and a political powder keg who used his supercharged and sexy Afrobeat sound and charismatic spirit to ignite and inspire a generation to dare challenge a government of oppression.

"More than a musical. An ecstatic phenomenon!"
- Time Out, New York

FELA ! is both rave and theatrical wonder. Thanks to Fela’s captivating music and the visionary direction and choreography of Tony Award® winner Bill T. Jones, this tale of courage, passion and love will shake you: body and soul.

In addition to his Tony Award® for FELA !, Bill T. Jones was celebrated in 2010 with a Kennedy Center Honor along with Merle Haggard, Jerry Herman, Paul McCartney and Oprah Winfrey.

Presented by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter , Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
