Unless you enjoy decibels that are ear shattering, this will not be your cup of tea! We left at intermission.......

Really wonderful and energetic show. The entire cast is excellent, but the actor who plays Fela Kuti is mesmerizing in the role - the whole audience loved him. The music and dancing are fantastic, very entertaining and powerful. Highly...continued

WOW! The lead guy as Fela was amazing, though frequently difficult to understand. The musicians and dancers were incredibly talented. The singer who portrayed his mother had a gorgeous voice and powerful presence, and Michele Williams was pretty...continued

While the music was generally good, the "story", as it were, was thin and not interesting. We left at intermission. Also, the venue was not more than 10% full, in all price ranges, and yet your godlstar tickets were in the last row of the...continued

FELA was great. The acting, singing, dancing, music, costumes and lighting were all fantastic. Reading the background of the people involved was very impressive.

I had trouble understanding the lead talking. I think the sound system may have been vibrating. The music was very loud. After a while, the constant intensity of the music started to get to me. I wanted some relief and to be able to understand...continued

Fela was amazing! There was so much energy. The lead of Fela, the lead dancer, the woman who played Fela's mom and the band were all over the top great.
The only thing that missed and I mean missed by a mile (hence the 4, rather than 5 stars)...continued

I loved the dancing and music. the performance could/should have been tighter. i could not understand/hear the main character well. I have never seen such rude cellphone behavior from a theater crowd. the Paramount should be much more vigilant....continued

Mediocre. **Totally** glad to have spent only 1/2 the cost with Goldstar. My friend Juliette was w-a-y excited to see this. We'd missed the San Francisco appearance. Happy to visit the **extraordinary** Paramount Theatre for this performance. ...continued

The show was great, lots of energy and great visuals. It was a little hard to follow because the main character spoke so fast but I think that's the nature of the show, but the narrations really helped me follow along.
On another note, I was...continued

Ticketing process was fine, although there were a lot of empty seats and we wondered why we couldn't have gotten better seats. I love going to the paramount, but the sound was not good in the balcony, and the subtitles were obscured by the scenery.
