A stage musical based on the life and music of Bob Marley is coming, and will have its premiere in Birmingham in March.
One Love: The Bob Marley Musical will feature the reggae legend’s classic tracks like No Woman No Cry, Exodus and Jamming.
It has the blessing of his family, including daughter Cadella, who said Birmingham was a “natural place for its UK premiere”, adding:
“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.”
The show will be written and directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah and is an updated version of his show Marley, which he staged in Baltimore last year.
The new show will open at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 10 March and run to 8 April.
