Directed and choreographed by Tony-winner Bill T. Jones (Spring Awakening) and produced by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, FELA! brings a high-energy mix of dance, theater and music to tell the true-life story of the legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. With a score featuring Kuti’s pioneering music — a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies – FELA! powerfully explores Kuti’s controversial life as an innovative artist, civil-rights champion and revolutionary musician. The show won three 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Choreography, and now the national tour comes to the Ordway Center in St. Paul.
