Arts.Advocacy+Wellness: "Post TONY Awards...still/here cause...FELA Lives!!!"

still/here 'cause...FELA Lives!!!

Though some Tony Voters chose commerce over Art, Fela is what theater is: Daring, Celebratory, Inventive, and Universal. In my eyes Fela is BEST MUSICAL of ALL Times!

If you have not seen Fela on Broadway...PLEASE HURRY TO SEE IT.
Everybody say: "Yeah, Yeah"

Broadway and some Tony voters let me down. Instead of celebrating and honoring a show that is fresh, inventive, daring, moving and celebratory of life and the universal connection we all share - that connection that potentially promotes solidarity and give Hope - some voters thought different. Some voters chose to honor the more oppressively driven shows that are not new in concept, dated topics, and limits our scope on life. While I am congratulatory of the winning nominees, it saddens me to see that a show as poignant as Fela, was not given the recognition from the academy it deserves. I've always found the theater community to be bold/daring and a place for liberation; however with the the results, my point of reference is shifting. There is a lot more we need to learn about ourselves and what message and beliefs we truly stand for. Fela lives in my life and many others. Solidarity, liberation, and peace for ALL. This is what we should celebrate! "Yeah, Yeah!"

CATCH Fela live on Broadway at
The EUGENE O'NEILL Theater - 230 W. 49th St., NYC
