The first act was great, focusing mostly on Fela's music and African dances. The second fell apart with other choreography and a story that dragged.

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

Absolutely spectacular! The dancing was MAGNIFICENT. The band was incredible. And the actor portraying Fela? Brilliant. Fun, uplifting, and sobering, all at once. An unforgettable theatre experience.

High energy dancing, mixed with dialogue was in interesting way to hear the story of Fela. A little on the long side though...

The first act is absolutely fabulous. Not to be missed. The second act is good but not as good as the first. Overall this play is entertaining and fun. Worth going to see it.
