oppressive military government, Fela! celebrates the genius of this revolutionary musician and political activist. Fela! has
become a huge success on stage, and became one of the most critically-acclaimed musicals of the 2010 season, receiving three

the music and the story of legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti! Buy your Fela

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 wow audiences
and critics alike. Through workshops with musicians, actors, dancers and technicians, the three began to focus specifically
on Fela's life during the highly-charged 1970s. The show portrays the determined musician as he pays the price for his opinions.
