Maybe I was expecting too much. The music is good (I went because already know and love Fela and Femi's music) and the dancing very energetic, but the story - while about an important figure - is quite simple and so needed to be told in a much...continued

We came as skeptics, being longtime Fela Kuti fans. So, after the first few minutes it felt very strange indeed- sitting in this fancy theatre in comfortable seats consuming a product from the uber-commercial Broadway/Hollywood axis. Soon...continued

Wow wow wow! LOVED the show! Sahr Ngaujah (Fela Kuiti) is so freaking talented in communicating Fela's talent and struggle. The show isn't a traditional book musical (which threw me initially), but still managed to tell a powerful story through...continued

FELA! AMEN! Such a fantastic show. It's a great premise (Fela is performing a concert at the Shrine) and the performances gave me goosebumps. I am a huge fan of Fela's music and felt as though I was seeing Fela himself! The band was phenomenal,...continued

Everything about this show was fantastic- the music, the dancing, the singing. Not much of a story, but who cares? I took my 93 year old grandmother, and she even got up and danced! Not to be missed!
