The "kinetic" and "transporting" musical "Fela!" had The New York Times declaring that "there should be dancing in the streets" when it opened on Broadway in 2009. Three Tony Awards and several sold-out tour stops later, the story of Nigerian musician and civil rights leader Fela Kuti comes to the Arie Crown Theater, and Travelzoo subscribers can save 50% on performances Feb. 19-22.
