ASSOCIATED PRESS

‘Fela!’ is being readied for the big screen

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=12588436

“The sumptuous Afro-beat rhythms of “Fela!” may have died down on Broadway, but his beat goes on elsewhere.  Now it prepares for a close-up: National Theatre Live is to broadcast Thursday’s performance by satellite from the West End’s Olivier Theatre to over 360 locations in more than 20 places, including Australia, South Africa, across western Europe, Canada and about 100 screens in the U.S.”

 

BOSTON HERALD

Hit musical ‘Fela!’ coming via London telecast

http://bostonherald.com/entertainment/arts_culture/view.bg?articleid=1308650&format=text

“Finally, Boston gets to see ‘Fela!’ The hit musical about Nigerian musician-provocateur Fela Kuti closed last week on Broadway, after garnering three Tonys and 11 Tony nominations.  But the show is now playing in London at the National Theatre – and on Thursday (and next Monday, too) you can see it in movie theaters in Brookline, Rockport and five other Massachusetts cities when “Fela!” goes international via a live telecast.”

MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

Hamlet, Frankenstein and Fela all due at the Guthrie, on high-def video

“Twenty bucks for a movie may seem like a lot, but it’s cheap compared to flying to London to see the productions that are being shown at the Guthrie this winter and spring as part of the National Theatre Live series. The productions are screened in high-def video in the Guthrie’s proscenium theater.”
