Theater Review: Marley

Center Stage

Maryland Morning's Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck sits down with Tom Hall to talk about Marley: A World Premier Musical which opened at Center Stage on May 8th and runs until June 14th, 2015 . The play explores Bob Marley during a pivotal period in his life, when he finds himself the target of an attempted assassination. J. Wynn Rousuck and Tom Hall talk about the music, plot and the performances. Written and directed by KwameKwei-Armah, Marley is a collaboration between Center Stage and The Public Theater in New York City.
