Fela!, the story of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti, played to packed houses and rave reviews when it debuted Off Broadway in 2008, and since nobody loves a hit like Broadway, they’re bringing the show back on the boards starting this fall. Previews for Fela! begin on October 19, 2009 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, in advance of a November 23 opening. Brooklyn’s Antibalas afrobeat ensemble will once again supply the music for Fela!, and Sahr Ngaujah will reprise his role as Fela Kuti.
