Fela! is a new and very unique show coming to Broadway. The first preview performance is on October 19, 2009 and it will play the Eugene O'Neill Theater on west 49th Street in the Broadway theater district.
Fela! is a unique type of Broadway attraction in that it is comprised of a combination of musical theater, dance and concert. Fela! is a new musical which is based on the life of Fela Anikalupo-Kuti who was a famous "Afrobeat legend".
Fela! played Off Broadway last year summer and was quite popular. So popular that it is booked to play on Broadway with an open ended run. Several critics loved the Off Broadway show. Bloomberg News said it is "electric and eclectic, exotic and hypnotic, at once overpowering and empowering". In addition the New York times said it was "nigh impossible to resist".
Fela! has been produced with arrangements by Aaron Johnson and Antibalas with direction and choreography by Bill T. Jones. Mr. Jones recently won a Tony Award for Best Choreography for Spring Awakening a few years back. The music and lyrics in Fela! are written by Fela Anikalupo-Kuti.
Fela! will perform for Broadway audiences every day but Sundays. There will be two shows on Saturdays, at 2 and 8pm. Fela! will have a running time of 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission.
Being a local Broadway ticket expert, and seeing as how the show is a one of a kind unique type show, my hunch is that Fela! might need a hand with getting the word of mouth out about the show. With this in mind, Applause Ticket Agency (New York State license # 71AP1001029) is offering discount tickets at below face value prices.
What is below face value you might ask? Very simply put, we will be able to obtain seats for Fela! at less than the usual printed price on the ticket. We then add on a small service fee for our efforts and you pay us less than the usual cost of a ticket.
