Afrobeat musical ‘Fela!’ wins big at Helen Hayes Awards

The effervescent Afrobeat musical “Fela!” cleaned up at the 40th Helen Hayes Awards on Monday night at the Anthem, claiming five prizes — including best production of a musical — during a glitzy celebration of the best in D.C. theater.

Staged at Olney Theatre Center and co-produced with Round House Theatre, the revival was the Fela Kuti jukebox musical’s first since its Broadway tour ended in 2013. The show also earned awards for director Lili-Anne Brown, choreographer Breon Arzell, supporting performer Melody A. Betts and its ensemble.
