Fela! - 2011

Audiences = 4.7


Running since October 2009
A new musical based on the life of Nigerian composer and political activist Fela Anikulapo-Kuti (the father of the hypnotic, percussive style known as Afrobeat) comes to Broadway.
Winner of 3 Tony Awards, including Best Choreography. Closes January 2nd.


The Broadway production of Fela! closed January 2, 2011. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.


This show, directed and choreographed by downtown legend Bill T. Jones, originated Off-Broadway, where its 2008 production was embraced by audiences and critics. The same has been true on Broadway, and the show seems set for an exciting awards season and a solid run.

"Fela!" captures the jubilant nature of Afrobeat (which combines Afro-Caribbean rhythm, jazz brass, Yoruban chant, and R&B) in a hybrid format that mixes concert, dance, and musical theatre. As the USA Today critic wrote, "Fela! earns its exclamation point, joyfully and relentlessly.”

Some critics found the story-telling somewhat lacking, but as the NY Times noted, the musical "doesn’t so much tell a story, as soak an audience to and through the skin with the musical style and sensibility" of the wildly-talented, extravagant, decadent, and rebellious Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
