Very entertaining, if a bit disjointed production. I liked it. My girlfriend really liked it. Definitely worth checking out. The lead actor who plays Fela is outstanding, marshaling an exceptional level of energy and enthusiasm.

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

Great event - lots of fun dancing - just wish I could understand some of the humor as the accents were a bit thick.

The play was fantastic! I was already familiar with the music of Fela and the basic facts of his life, especially of his activism. The play did justice to both! The music and acting were both fantastic as was the costuming and makeup - bring or...continued

Bravo! Excellent performance. I have been to 'The Shrine' in Lagos, and this performance brought it home.

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

Excellent engaging production! Besides following the story on stage, it's a multi-sensory experience. They've incorporated video and audience interaction with dance. Rousing and educational two hours!

Great show! A TOTAL experience! Dancing, singing, special effects, and very high energy. It was hard to sit still in the seat because I wanted to get up and move. We got seated in the first row in the mezzanine. Fabulous view from there. It...continued

This was really a memorable, enlightening and informative afternoon of theatre. The singing was excellent and the dancers were outstanding. Aside from that, the story was told in a compelling manner that although entertaining left the audience...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

Loved it! Such energy! Highly recommend! Due to strong accent, at times difficult to understand all the words -- appreciated the song script written on the back drop. The political message is very sad...what we do to people of other...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

This is truly one of the best theatrical experiences of my life! I was totally immersed in the experience! The story, the activism via music, Fela's love for his mother, the dancing, the singing, the Afro-Beat band, the costumes, the hair, the...continued

You could tell they'd been doing this together for awhile, in perfect harmony, music and choreography-wise. Was not familiar with the story, learned something very worthwhile.
