Fela! is stunning in both senses of the adjective: exhilarating to the point of paralyzing the observer with elation and overwhelming to the point of numbing the observer. Powered – and we do mean powered – by a supremely talented cast of singers/dancers/musicians executing thrilling choreography and song, the national tour settling for one week at the Arsht Center doesn’t just immerse the audience in the riches of African culture, it floods you until you fear you might drown.
There’s a distinctly younger, even hipper bent to the offerings for the Broadway Across America 2012-2013 season announced for the Adrienne Arsht Center — plus some old, old reliables. The line-up of only musicals on national tours encompasses Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Memphis, Rock of Ages, Mary Poppins and the 25th anniversary production of Les Miserables for the regular subscription plus added-cost extras of Fela! and Stomp.
