No, F.A.M.E NYC is not talking about Obama. We mean the king of Afrobeat! FELA! has returned to Broadway for a limited engagement at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, located on W. 45th Street, until August 4. FELA! is one of the most exciting musicals to hit the theatre community in ages. 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.
And while you’re at it…take a look at what F.A.M.E NYC had to say about this trailblazing musical,http://famenycmagazine.com/2009/12/30/the-black-president-comes-to-the-great-white-way-top-broadway-production-2009/.
