The Man - The Music
Following the same format as our highly successful production RUSH this production will be a narrated musical.
A Jamaican singer, songwriter and musician Bob Marley is considered one of the pioneers of reggae, his musical career was marked by fusing elements of reggae, ska, and rocksteady, as well as his distinctive vocal and song-writing style. Marley’s contributions to music increased the visibility of Jamaican music and made him a global figure in popular culture that resonates to this day.
Infusing his music with his own sense of spirituality, he secured his enduring position as a Rastafari Icon.
Join us in discovering all aspects of Bob Marley’s life and the impact one man’s music made both politically and musically.
An amazing line up of musicians will present an evening of live music which will be both informative and entertaining.
Production will be available from April 2022, contact us for more information.
