When: Fri., Feb. 15, 6 p.m. 2013
Just because the award-winning musical, Fela, isn't coming to Belk Theater until Feb. 25, doesn't mean you shouldn't go ahead and get pumped for the show on your own. Luckily, folks over at Gantt Center have arranged a fun, pre-show event that’s being dubbed "Fela: From Abeokuta to Broadway – A Panel Discussion". The discussion will add an educational twist on the show by spotlighting Nigerian musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Afterwards, Su Casa will present a special Fela-themed party with a guest DJ, Afrobeat music, dancing, face and body painting, photography displays and a cash bar.
