What an amazing Fela! - Sadler's Wells to host extended production from July 2011 onwards

Posted: 24th January 2011

This isn't the first time we've written about the joys of this soulful and rhythmic musical show, based on the true story of African activist and musician Fela Kuti - the production sold out at the National Theatre in double-quick time and is now set to do the same at Islington's iconic Sadler's Wells during the summer.

The new venue will host this acclaimed celebration of hardship, oppression and freedom from 20th July to 28th August with tickets available now, ranging from £15 to £50 and tickets are expected to absolutely fly out (so book early!).

Superlatives and acclaim have been levelled at the Tony-winning choreography, the songs and the acting - The Guardian declared that "The dancing is ecstatic, the music lifts the spirits, and the stage is alive with movement", while the Metro stated that it was "Fantastic. A fitting tribute to a man who made heads spin the world over". Don't miss out!
