Quotes & Highlights

Watch the video trailer for FELA!
The hot (and seriously cool) energy that comes from the musical gospel preached by the title character of _FELA! Feels as if it could stretch easily to the borders of Manhattan and then across a river or two. There should be dancing in the streets!" —New York Times _
“_FELA__!_ Is as rowdy as it is rousing. (It) is one of the most original and exciting shows to come around in a long while.” —_Daily News _
“There’s enough energy in the first act of _ FELA!_ to short circuit Con Ed. It spills over from the stage and into the orchestra seats. Boundless and joyous: This is as close as Broadway gets to fully immersive theatre.” —_New York Post _
Bill T. Jones’s wildly loose-limbed journey into the throbbing heart of Afrobeat breaks bold new ground in musical theatre." —_Variety _
