I saw Fela! (Broadway) on 09/17/10. Overall, I'd say it was a 4-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “One part concert, one part dance and one part one man show...high energy & exhuberent”

I had a great time and left the show feeling buoyant and uplifted. I'd describe the show as high energy, audience participatory, and visually beautiful. Lillas white's performance was a highlight of the show because she embodied the role so well. If this were a movie, I'd rate it PG-13. I would recommend this show to everyone but not to children under 10.

I saw this show because I really liked it, but it didn't capture my soul. I wouldn't see it again. I sat in the mezzanine area of the theater. The view was amazing and the seats were were fairly comfy.

I am really glad I got to see the show. It is unique, vibrant and beautiful. I didn't love it, but I did really like it. The dancing was amazing. The male lead is spectacular. The show was incredibly visual and the use of other media was amazing. The story was good, and one that I wasn't aware before the play, and that alone makes it a must see...it is a very enjoyable night...it just didn't quite click with me...but it is an amazing performance!
