A year ago I met Dr Carlos Moore in South Africa when he received the lawsuit (faxed to him from New York) which he filed against various parties in FELA THE MUSICAL. It’s taken twelve months. Today the case has been resolved. Read the letter below from Carlos Moore himself.
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
Please take note of the “Joint Statement” below, regarding the settlement of my dispute with the producers of the Broadway musical FELA!:
“The matter of Mr. Moore’s claims has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties.”
For your information, the FELA! playbill (and associated materials) now bear the acknowledgement: “Inspired by the authorized biography Fela, Fela: This Bitch of a Life!, by Carlos Moore.”
I wish to thank all those around the world who extended their support to me over this matter.
