Studio Africa & Fela! on Broadway

In February 2013 the internationally acclaimed smash Broadway musical Fela! returned to Washington, DC at the Shakespeare Theatre.  We'll give you one guess to find out who was on hand to catch the action?  What's that you murmur? Studio Africa!! You guessed it right!!  Studio Africa participants not only had the opportunity to go see the musical but afterwards they had the once in a lifetime opportunity to meet, take pictures and interact with key members of the musical.  Check out some of the pictures of the trip courtesy of Loves Life Photography below:

After the play, Studio Africa participants, who participated in an etiquette workshop facilitated by Potomac links member Norma Hutchenson, was joined by members of the cast of Fela! and put their newly learned skills to work at dinner at Carmines in downtown Washington, DC.
