Admittedly I live in a bit of a bubble and am not tapped into the theater or musicals community...well at all. I am however a Fela Kuti fan and was surprised when running a search on something to do with him that a Broadway production had been created to celebrate his life and music...no less with production credits that read Jay-Z and Will & Jada Pinkett Smith Presents....ummm, hi. I feel like I live under a rock right now. Anyhow, maybe all my friends and readers are way more on top of the world than I am but here is a teaser clip from the show and apparently it is getting rave reviews as well.
Another reason why I should get myself a subscription to either the NY Times or the New Yorker one of these days, ha!
