FELA!
Directed and Choreographed
by Bill T. Jones


The critically-acclaimed phenomenon called FELA! is the show that received three 2010 Tony Awards(R) and audience acclaim vis-a-vis sold out houses across the country is coming to Baltimore.  

FELA! tells the true story of the legendary Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti who is credited as the creator of the soulful music called Afrobeat. . .  and whose energy and activism ignited a and inspired a generation.  Motivated by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity. 

FELA! draws you in and takes you with Fela Kuti and his fellow performers whose music and dancing is absolutely riveting and infectious.  The choreography by Tony Award(R) winning choreographer Bill T. Jones will leave you spell-bound.

Critics praise it.  Audiences love it.  FELA! is SERIOUS ENTERTAINMENT!.
