Broadway Nigeria.........


Nigerian Theatre and Arts have always been in the picture, long before Nollywood. However the popularity of the Nollywood Home Video has camouflaged the novelty of watching plays and going to theatres and shows.


The National Theatre - built and established in 1977 has long been the heart of Nigerian Arts, Culture and Entertainment.


Muson Centre - even though founded much later, has also seen thousands of plays dating back to the early/mid '90s.


Terra Kulture - opened in 2004 is also another hotspot for shows and the likes and things that are art-related. It is a nice place to visit where you can see artifacts and experience a Bedrock feel....lol when my friend told me it looked like Bedrock, I asked her if she'd ever been to Bedrock lol - madam Flintstone!

Anyway Laspapi is a fantastic playwright lol I sound like I've already seen his work anyways I've seen pictures and read his blog often and he sounds too good not to be lol! He's done quite a few and its a shame I missed his The Gods are not to Blame - sounds like that was a major one. So you can take a look at his blog or the CORA blog (which is for the Committee for Relevant Art ).

Happy Holidays and to those in Lagos, I advise you all who are around to go and watch his play showing on the 26th of December - Wole Soyinka's - The Swamp Dwellers (see flyer below).


More later - I have given myself the challenge to blog on Christmas Day lol (sad I know).

Hello, mona. Thanx for talking about the play. For someone who doesn't live here, you seem to have pictures of everything.
Hope to see you very soon.

Have a very merry Christmas.
