In the early 2000s, New Yorker, Stephen Hendel stumbled across a CD of the Nigerian's unique brand of iconoclast, rabble-rousing
music. He instantly knew that a musical about Kuti's life had to be created-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 Kuti's amazing story to life. 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. Fela paid the price for his opinions and suffered hundreds of beatings during
his out-spoken lifetime. But he never wavered in his determination. Come witness a truly inspirational character on stage!
