FELA! on Broadway — Official Trailer
We are quite excited to introduce this next set of giveaways. It's for tickets to a show that is produced by Jay Z and Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith. It stars Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child. You'll want to get yourself to the AT&T Performing Arts Center to see Fela!.
Our tickets are for opening night, May 7, at the Winspear Opera House. We'll let the organizers tell you a little more about the show:
A spectacularly inspiring and triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, Fela! is based on the life of Fela Kuti, who created Afrobeat — a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies — and mixed these sensual eclectic rhythms with simple but powerful lyrics that openly assailed Nigeria’s corrupt and oppressive dictatorships. Featuring many of Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs performed by a combined cast of the original Broadway production and the Royal National Theatre production all under Bill T. Jones’s visionary staging, Fela! reveals Kuti’s life as an artist and human rights activist and celebrates his pioneering music in what has been hailed as one of the most exciting, exhilarating, and vital stage experiences in recent memory.
Makes us want to go. But we can't; you're the ones eligible for tickets. Between now and April 20, enter our contest. We are giving away five pairs of tickets. Each pair retails at about $80.
