During its original run it won Tony Awards for Best Choreography, Best Costume Design for a Musical and Best Sound Design of a Musical.  Now back in NYC for a brief period during its world tour, it would be criminal for anyone to miss it again. FELA! delivers bolts of lightening to the audience, but you don’t have to believe me…take a look.
