This was probably one of the best musicals I have ever seen in my life. The music was brilliant and the dancing......second to none! The lead character portraying Fela Kuti really embodied Fela's mannerisms very eloquently. This is not a show you...continued

You cannot stand still at this production. The music is so powerful and the dancing is as great as it gets,.. so much energy. Also a great history lesson, the actor portraying Fela does it with skill and vigor! We were way in the back but still...continued

Lively performance with great acting, music, and dancing. Interesting story once they told more of it. Probably would have been more compelling if I could have understood more of the words and thereby had an easier time of following the story.

Loved it. My only regret is that I waited and only saw the last performance, wish I could have seen it twice. The music and dancing left me breathless.
