Photos From FELA's Opening in Los Angeles

Written By Joseph Y. Musa on Monday, April 29, 2013 | 4/29/2013 10:02:00 am

R&B superstar Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child fame is one of the stars of "Fela!" The musical, filled with the exuberant music of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, which opened on April 26 in Los Angeles and runs through May 5, 2013. Below, BroadwayWorld has photos of the cast and creative team celebrating opening night!

A triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, "Fela!" is the true story of Kuti, who created a new type of music, Afrobeat, and mixed these pounding eclectic rhythms (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies) with incendiary lyrics that openly attacked the corrupt and oppressive military dictatorships that rule Nigeria and much of Africa. His songs of rebellion were an inspiration to millions.
