Fela!

Theatre : Oriental Theatre, Chicago Illinois
Dates : March 27, 2012 - April 15, 2012

 
 

FELA!, the joyous dance, theater, music spectacle, has thrilled audiences in three continents. The Tony Award® winner, directed and choreographed by Bill T. Jones explores the extravagant world of Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti. FELA! comes to Chicago's Oriental Theater following its sold-out run at London's prestigious National Theatre where The Guardian's Michael Billington exclaimed, "It breaks down conventional barriers between stage and auditorium and joins passion and politics. The dancing is ecstatic, the music lifts the spirits, and the stage is alive with movement." After Ben Brantley of the New York Times raved, "There should be dancing in the streets!" Bill T. Jones earned a Tony Award® for Best Choreographer. He was also given the Astaire Award and received a 2010 Kennedy Center Honor along with Oprah Winfrey.
