November 12, 2010

The Tony-Award winning musical Fela recently celebrated its 400th performance. What a great honor! (The cast and production crew received three Tony’s at this year’s Tony Awards! Nollywood superstars Ramsey Noah and Uche Jombo are counted as fans of the musical as we reported. )

Here’s to another successful 400, Fela on Broadway! I’m curious to see if this good news will increase the mainstream’s focus on retelling rich African stories on Broadway.
