FELA! 

When: Jan. 31-Feb. 1, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $5-$30

If you've seen Fela Kuti: Music Is the Weapon, the powerful documentary about the Nigerian bandleader's life, music and politics, then you know that he was an artist like no other. Last year, the Broadway musical Fela! earned three Tony Awards, posthumously bringing the Afrobeat godfather back into the limelight. The show was co-written and choreographed by Bill T. Jones (a legend in his own right), and you'll have the opportunity to catch Britain's acclaimed National Theatre production in a high-definition broadcast, hosted by the Springs' own TheatreWorks. The musical screens at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater (3955 Regent Circle, theatreworkscs.org) at 7 pm tonight and tomorrow, with encores next Tuesday and Wednesday. Tickets are $13 for subscribers, $15 for non-members, and free for UCCS students with ID. — Bill Forman
