A World Premiere Bob Marley Musical Opens Tonight At Center Stage

Fifty-Six Hope Road Music, Ltd.

Marley, a new musical by KwameKwei-Armah, opens tonight at Center Stage. Marley tells the story of a particularly difficult time in the life of reggae icon Bob Marley, in the mid-1970s, just before and after he fled to London from his native Jamaica, following an assassination attempt. There are more than two dozen Bob Marley songs in this new show. Tom Hall sat down with Center Stage Artistic Director KwameKwei-Armah, who wrote the book and has directed this world premiere production.

Audio for this segment will be available by the end of the day.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
