The first Bob Marley musical is now playing at Baltimore’s Center Stage.  The music legends life story is played out on stage during a time when he survived an attempted assassination in Jamaica and went into exile in London.

The musical, simply titled, Marley will focus on the Jamaican icon’s life from 1975-1977 when he recorded some of his most memorable albums, Exodus, Kaya and Rastaman Vibration.  That said, Marley will feature several classics from those albums like “Jammin”, “Three Little Birds”, “I Shot the Sheriff” and “No Woman, No Cry.”

Playwright/actor/director Kwame Kwei-Armah, teamed up with New York’s Public Theater and most importantly Blue Mountain Music, which holds the publishing rights to Marley’s catalog, to create the bio-musical.  Of course Marley’s family is heavily involved as well, playing a role in the production and assisting with the writing to make sure the musical is accurate.

Speaking of which, Marley’s daughter Cedella Marley gave her take on the musical and you can listen to Tha Wire below to hear what she had to say.  Plus, find out how long the musical will be run.
