Everybody Say Yea, Yea to Sahr Ngaujah's Eclectic Fela! Digs

Onstage, Sahr Ngaujah is a man of many words—or rather his character, political activist and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, is, riffing on everything from the power of music to what the audience is drinking during performances at Fela!.

A Touch of the Poet: Mark Rylance's Bizarre Approach to Tony Acceptance Speeches

Over the years we’ve heard every kind of acceptance speech under the sun: impassioned (paging Ms. Alice Ripley), multiplied (original Billy Elliots Trent Kowalik, David Alvarez and Kiril Kulish, in stereo), teary (Karen Olivo), sardonic (Tracy Letts) and even rapped (thank you, Lin-Manuel Miranda).
