Fela is having quite the extended moment indeed. And rightly so, considering the reach of his influence. The WSJ ran an interesting article on 11/6 about how African American musicians and filmmakers are rallying behind the Broadway show to save from closing because of weak ticket sales. It would be a shame if this show closed because it's very much worth seeing. I saw it when it was off Broadway and recently in previews. Despite the weak book, director Bill Jones's strong choreography and sure direction as well as the music of those peerless Fela disciples, Antibalas, suceeds in evoking the inspired lunacy of Fela's genius.
