The Olivier Award winning show received its world premiere performance at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on 1 October 2021 and will play its final performance in London’s West End on 8 January 2023.
Producers have announced that an original cast recording will be released in 2022 featuring Olivier Award nominee Arinzé Kene as Bob Marley.
An exact release date for the album is to be announced.
Lose yourself to the rhythm of ‘Exodus’, ‘No Woman No Cry’, ‘Waiting in Vain’, ‘Three Little Birds’, ‘I Shot the Sheriff’, ‘Could You Be Loved’, ‘Redemption Song’ and many more.
The explosive production celebrates the immense life and timely message of Jamaican soul rebel Bob Marley – from a life of poverty to visionary international superstar. Crucial fellow soul rebels in the cast include the sensational Rita Marley and the I Three and his inspiring brothers in arms, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Lee ‘Scratch Perry’.
Meanwhile following the West End, the production will embark on a UK-wide tour with full details to be announced soon.
Cedella Marley said: “Hearing my father’s music brought to life in this wonderful show has made me so proud. Proud that his legacy has reached so many people, proud that his music has so many fans and continues to inspire new generations and proud of the amazing group of people who have put the show together.
“It is so exciting that we can now plan for the show to travel around the UK and the world and that many more audiences will get the chance to see it and fall in love all over again with my father’s music.”
