Great energy, dynamic male lead, terrific afro-beat choreograpy by Bill T Jones. Story meanders and gets lost in the telling.

FELA was spectacular! The performances of Sahr Ngaujah (FELA), Melanie Marshall (Funmilayo, FELA's mother) and Paulette Ivory (Sandra) were extraordinary!! The music makes you want to get up and dance. The cast invites you to do just that.

Loved loved loved the show. The most fun I have ever had at a musical. It was like seeing a show at the Shrine, live and full of energy. However, be mindful of the seats you buy. I paid for what I thought was Orchestra and the random throw of...continued

Simply fantastic! What an amazing, energetic evening. This show is not perfect, but it is immensely entertaining and educational. I knew nothing of Fela Kuti before seeing this show, and now I don't know how I went so many years without...continued

Interesting story with wonderful music. Not enough variety to the dancing and singing for me. I also missed quite a few words both in song and in speaking.

I went to Fela! expecting an interactive, inspiring theatrical event. While the first act did live somewhat up to those expectations I found the second act monotonous and therefore, quite long. All it focused on was the government attacking Fela....continued

So much fun should be illegal. Superbly produced, acted, danced, etc., etc. "Fela" even involved the audience at one point having everybody stand up and dance. The only caveat is that sometimes his African accent was hard to understand, and the...continued

This musical is phenomenal! High energy singing, dancing, and a great afro-latin jazz band playing the music. The actor who portrays Fela, is sensational! You do not want to miss this show! There is a small amount of racy language, so I would not...continued

First act is incredible, second act is a kind of dream scene with lots of special effects and dancing (very good), but short on story. All in all it was very good.

AMAZING! The actor portraying Fela was INCREDIBLE! You deserved a Tony for that performance! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this musical. If you want to have a great time, go see Fela at the Ahmanson! You won't regret it. By the way, Goldstar, I LOVED my...continued
