Opened June 2011.  Book by Jim Lewis & Bill T. Jones, Music & Lyrics by Fela Anikulapu-Kuti

With a cast comprised from previous National Theatre and Broadway productions Fela! is about the extravagant, decadent and rebellious world of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), Fela! explores Kuti's controversial life as artist, political activist and revolutionary musician. The show is a hybrid of concert, dance and musical theatre.
