A Bob Marley musical is coming to the U.K. in 2017, according to NME, RTT News reports.
The musical titled One Love: The Bob Marley Musicalwill be based on the artist’s life and music. Some of Marley’s most popular reggae songs like “No Woman No Cry,” “Exodus” and “Jamming” will be featured in the production.
Marley’s daughter Cadella supports the musical and says Birmingham was a “natural place for its UK premiere,” and added, “With its great mix of cultures, it’s a city where my father performed to audiences that were captivated by his presence, and we have no doubt that telling the story through music to a new generation in Birmingham will be part of his continuing legacy.”
One Love: The Bob Marley Musical is scheduled to premiere at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on March 10 in 2017. The musical will run up until April 8.
