When New Yorker, Stephen Hendel stumbled across a CD of the Nigerian's unique brand of iconoclast, rabble-rousing music,
he was determined to create a theatre piece that expressed the timeless and universal message that Fela Kuti was trying to
get across with his fiery lyrics and passion for social justice. Hendel joined forces with Tony Award-winning choreographer,
Bill T. Jones and writer Jim Lewis in 2004, and the three began creating the stage production that would someday bring joy
and entertainment to audiences everywhere. Because Kuti's life was so full of good content for a script it was hard to decide
what to include in the stage production. The three collaborators decided to focus specifically on Fela's life during the highly-charged
1970s. The production shows how the musician paid the price for his opinions. Even though Fela suffered hundreds of beatings
during his out-spoken lifetime, he never wavered in his determination. Come witness a truly inspirational character on stage!
