‘Fela’ broadcast not coming to a theater near you

Last week, you may have caught choreographer Bill T. Jones on the Kennedy Center honors broadcast.

On January 13 you can go to the movie theater, get a tub of popcorn, and see his work in the Broadway production of "Fela"…

…if you are in Covington, KY, Cleveland Heights, OH, Missoula, MT, or dozens of other places that aren't Indianapolis.

London's National Theatre will be broadcasting a production of the high-energy biographical musical for one day only. But theaters in Indiana aren't part of the program.

It's part of National Theatre Live, which offered "Hamlet" last month and will be adding the Donmar Warehouse production of "King Lear" (with the great Derek Jacobi), "Frankenstein," and "The Cherry Orchard" later in the season.

Interested? Let your friendly neighborhood theater know. Now.
