Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical
Producer & General Manager
Playful Productions is producing, with their partners StagePlay and Cedella Marley, the world premiere of Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical which will begin previews at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue in May 2021, to mark what would have been Bob Marley’s 76th birthday.
‘It’s not all that glitters is gold, half the story has never been told’
From the hills of rural Jamaica, armed only with his overwhelming talent and righteous beliefs, Bob Marley applied himself with resolute determination to achieve international acclaim for his prophetic musical message – a gospel of love and unity.
With unlimited access to Marley’s platinum-selling catalogue of music, the multi award-winning team of Lee Hall (writer), Clint Dyer (director) and Arinzé Kene (playing Bob Marley) capture the rebellious spirit and story of this universal icon. A euphoric company of performers fuse with the finest reggae musicians to bring this triumphant tale of passion, political unrest and progress from Trenchtown to the West End.
Audiences will be able to lose themselves to ‘Exodus’, ‘No Woman No Cry’, ‘Waiting in Vain’, ‘Three Little Birds’, ‘I Shot the Sheriff’, ‘Could You Be Loved’, ‘Redemption Song’ and many more.
‘One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain’.
