The first act was ecstasy, pure and simple. In the second act, the event seems to decide that it wants to be a drama. That's where it drags a bit. All is made right, however by the rousing ending. Great to see performances of Fela greats like "Zombies." Bt all means, GO!

topekat70 got it right. I saw it in NYC and was worn out from moving to the Beat - songs like Trouble Sleep, Zombie, Expensive S... and International thief Thief are tremendous.
