Audience stands at FELA Boston

audience stands

FELA! pulled the audience on its feet numerous times this past Wednesday night.

No wonder its buzz attracted celebrities such as Madonna,Denzel Washington, Mick Jagger, and First Lady Michelle Obama and a half-million others to its Broadway performances.

Boston has a chance to see this Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith production.  Get tickets now through May 6th.

You will feel this show long after you leave the venue. The music will be in your head. The athletic energetic dancing will inspire you. The moral message is intelligient. This show will have you feeling like its one of the best investments in a night out you could have ever made. And, you’ll be amazed at how Mr. Fela Kuti fused political leadership skills with the invention of the AfroBeat music genre.

You’ll see — musically speaking, Mr. Kuti puts the sax-playing former President Bill Clinton and soul-singer President of the United States Barack Obama to shame.
