This Tony award-winning musical, presented by some totally unknown people named Jay-Z, Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett Smith, explores the story behind celebrated Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. Directed and choreographed by Tony award-winner Bill T. Jones, audiences will be captivated by Kuti’s journey as an artist and human rights activist, dramatized by the soundtrack of his musical creation—Afrobeat. Considering Fela! sold out at London’s National Theatre and has amused viewers on three continents, this is one show you shouldn’t miss. But in case you need extra incentive, the touring production features Michelle Williams, one-third of supergroup Destiny’s Child. Maybe you remember them?
