"Our father's music means so much to so many people around the world, we're beyond thrilled to be able to bring it to both fans and new audiences alike in a new way," said Cedella Marley, Bob Marley’s daughter.
‘Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Story’, a new musical about reggae pioneer Bob Marley, is heading to London early next year.
The musical will preview at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End on February 6, 2021. Arinzé Kene stars as the titular character and playwright/screenwriter Lee Hall wrote the production.
Bob Marley’s genre blended music put reggae on the map internationally. The Jamaican-born star touched millions with his positive messages of love and unity. Though he passed away in 1981, his legacy of love continues to inspire today.
"As a family we feel that our father would be proud to know that his legacy is a source of creative inspiration and continues to bring people together,” said Cedella Marley, Bob Marley’s daughter.
Tickets for the musical will be on sale April 21, 2020 and priority booking sign up is available at https://getupstandupthemusical.com/.
