Excellent show! A tour de force of Fela's music and impact on Nigeria. The dance, musical performances and overall staging is brilliant. Thanks to everyone who brought this show! Sar Nguajah is phenomenal!

Hands down, the best musical I have ever seen! And I love musicals. From the beginning, the dancing and music make you sit up and pay attention. And it doesn't hurt that the cast is pure eye candy, those bodies . . . Mmmm, Mmmm. It's interactive,...continued

The show was fantastic! The dancers, singers and theo band were great. I like how they involved the audience in a dance routine. I want to learn some of the movements that the females were doing.
I plan on reading about Fela because I enjoyed...continued

High energy, beyond entertaining. You will be standing up, cheering, and dancing. The show could be edited (be prepared for almost 3 hours) and still not lose its impact.

Amazing first act! The lead actor was dangerously charismatic and the compelling story, creative staging, live Afrobeat music and glorious dancing kept me riveted. Sadly, I got lost in the second act. The story jumped back in time, making it...continued

The music and dancing are vibrant and energetic! While the story is a bit thin, the production and performances make "Fela" a force of entertainment!
