Patti LaBelle Joins Cast Of FELA!

We've been trying to tell you… FELA! on Broadway is simply the most exciting musical we've EVER seen. And now, to add to the fervor, Miz Pat – yes, the one and only Patti LaBelle – is set to join the cast in the role of Fela's mother, the revolutionary activist Funmilayo Anikulapo-Kuti! Ms. LaBelle had this to say ""I am both thrilled and honored to be joining the cast of FELA! on Broadway. After seeing the show, I was struck by the choreography and work of Bill T. Jones, and the passion and joy that overflows from the stage. Fela's mother, Funmilayo, was a strong, truly inspiring woman and I am so privileged to be able to pay tribute to her on the Broadway stage."
