BOB MARLEY: Musical Opening in Baltimore
The show will focus on the the late reggae legend’s life from 1975 to 1977.
Bob Marley is the latest icon to be made the subject of a musical.
Marley will open next year at Baltimore Center Stage and focus on the late reggae legend’s life from 1975 to 1977, when his global popularity surged. The show will include the assassination attempt he survived and his self-imposed isolation in England when he recorded Exodus and Kaya. The musical will feature such Legend songs as “I Shot the Sheriff” and “No Woman, No Cry.”
Marley family members are involved in the development and writing of the show, but are not serving as its producers. New York’s Public Theater is involved with Baltimore Center Stage as creative collaborators on Marley, but there are no definite plans for a New York run.
