Biographical musicals tend to sugarcoat the details of their subject's real lives, such as Annie Oakley's tone deafness and Simba's tendency to eat meerkats. Sing along to historical accuracy with this GrouponLive deal to see Fela! at Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts. For $49, you get two tickets for reserved main-floor seating in sections 1–4, rows E–X, on Wednesday, February 29, at 8 p.m. (up to a $118.40 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).

Nominated for 11 2010 Tony Awards and winner of three, the inspirational musical Fela! thrills the senses with stunning choreography, elaborate sets, and soulful sounds as it celebrates legendary Nigerian musician and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Kuti sowed the seeds of Afrobeat music, which finally gave the world something to dance to besides Morse code. The sonic movement intertwined political themes, native harmonies, and energetic instrumentation such as bombastic horns and galloping congas to fight for civil rights and squash government oppression in a non-lethal fashion. In telling the legend's astounding life story, Fela! explodes with rousing dances set to original Kuti songs performed by the touring Broadway cast and original lead actor Sahr Ngaujah. Bowling over critics and presented by showbiz moguls Jay-Z and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the powerhouse spectacle packs an indomitable spirit of courage, passion, and love, leaving audiences spellbound and gratefully afflicted with restless body syndrome.

Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
