Highlights From Fela!, Returning to Broadway

The spirited Tony-winning musical Fela! returns to Broadway as part of the production's current world tour. The expressionistic docu-rock musical explores the true-life details of Nigerian Afrobeat musician and revolutionary political figure Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, played by Sahr Ngaujah, who originated the role on Broadway. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Bill T. Jones (Spring Awakening), Fela! features a book by Jones and Jim Lewis and utilizes Kuti's own funk- and jazz-fueled music. Officially opening on July 12, the show will have a 32-performance encore run at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. For more on the production click here.
