Not quite like anything I've seen before. Very intense African rhythms, mournful songs, a storyline that is both horrifying and uplifting. The performances were outstanding, especially the two female singers. The dancing was excellent.

OMG! I took my 80-year old mother to see Fela and we had a ball! IT WAS AWESOME! Our seats were great, the parking was $9.00 but way worth it. I could almost go see it... continued

Powerful performances! Great show full of great music and dancing. It was an extraordinary experience. FELA KUTI was an amazing pioneer who played a significant part in the liberation of Nigerian people.

The show's great. It's the first time I've seen it and the alternate actor played Fela. He was great. Hard to imagine someone better, but it might have been nice to know I was paying to see the alternate.

Amazing event. if you like afrobeat music and drums and a really vivacious musical this is it. Plus it's great to learn the political backdrop during Fela Kuti's life. He is an amazing human being.

Amazing music and a really intense story! I loved it! The theater is the perfect size so that really you have a good view even from the very back of the theater.
