FELA! On Tour in a City Near You

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

This week sees the touring company of FELA! hitting the road on their first national tour of the musical production that tells the story of Fela Kuti, Afrobeat pioneer and political activist. It's a fantastic show. The music, provided live by members of Antibalas, is irresistible and the dancing, choreographed by legend Bill T. Jones, is exceptional. This tour features Beyoncé's former Destiny's Child cohort Michelle Williams in the cast, alongside talented Broadway performers and musicians, and should be a blast. I saw FELA! on Broadway, and can't recommend it enough. If it comes to your town (or the next town over, or the next one over from that), go see it.
