LA EVENTS: Fela! Comes to Los Angeles

I’ve heard from countless folks that this is the “must-see” event of the year.

Direct from Broadway, the musical FELA !  is coming to Los Angeles this month! From December 13 – January 22, FELA ! will be playing at the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

Legendary Nigerian Fela Kuti was a musical dynamo and  a political powder keg who used his supercharged and  sexy Afrobeat sound and charismatic spirit to ignite and  inspire a generation to dare challenge a government of oppression.

FELA ! is both rave and theatrical wonder. Thanks to Fela’s  captivating music and the visionary direction and choreography of Tony Award® winner Bill T. Jones, this tale of courage, passion and  love will shake you: body and soul.

In addition to his Tony Award® for FELA !, Bill T. Jones was celebrated  in 2010 with a Kennedy Center Honor along with Merle Haggard, Jerry Herman, Paul McCartney and Oprah Winfrey.

Presented by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter , Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith.
