Last night we had the pleasure of seeing the hit Broadway Play FELA at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre and what a show it was. Now unless you have been living under a rock the show which is based on the late Nigerian singer Fela Kuti has been the talk of the town since it opened on Broadway in Nov of 2009 and due to the success of the play which might i add racked up 3 Tony Awards has resurfaced once again for a limited run which will once again come to a close this August. Usually when you come to a Broadway show you of course are entertained by the numerous musical numbers but what we didnt expect was for the dancers/actors to be so hands on with the crowd which had us up on our feet as soon as the play began which set the show off perfectly.

The musical numbers were choreographed brilliantly by the Award winning Bill T Jones which kept us in awe as i watched my friend Danny Soto shine on stage with his cast. Danny who is Brooklyn Native is a part of the Ensemble cast who started out with the show since the beginning of its run off Broadway in 2008. Now although Adesola Osakulami is the lead actor in the show as Fela, it goes as no surprise that the cast of dancers and singers make this show as its not a one man stage play. Throughout the story of Fela’s life we definitely seen the significance of his music & culture in today’s music which is why the show will continue on tour next year. When asked about why Danny felt the show was a success he mentioned that ‘ Its a show that tells a story close to home for anyone that has ever felt like they had to be in search for something greater in life and would do whatever it takes to make it happen ‘. Now of course I could be biased and say we totally agree because i know him, but the show is just that great and leaves you wanting to fight for your dreams. Jay-Z, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith & QuestLove are just some of the notable producers of this play and were thankful they helped bring the show to light. So do yourself a favor and make sure you capture this brilliant show before it hits the road by purchasing tickets HERE then tell us what you thought.
