Fela! Plot Summary

This musical is based on a true story. Inspired by his mother, Fela Anikulapo Kuti was a civil rights revolutionary, polygamist, and innovative Afrobeat musician. The action takes place in Nigeria during the 1970s, where Kuti had a Lagos nightclub called The Shrine. Not a traditional show, Fela! features African dance, sound, and audience participation. You'll hear songs like "Zombie," "Na Poi," and "Kere Kay."

Politics is an important theme in Fela! During his lifetime, Anikulapo Kuti cared about both politics at home and the American Black Power movement. According to reviews, the plot is not complicated, but audiences don't mind. Nigerian music, politics, and culture are the key elements of this unique production.
