At last we're ready to share our plans for the final exciting show of the 14/15 Season. Announcing for the first time ever...

Music and Lyrics by Bob Marley
Book by Kwame Kwei-Armah

WHEN: May 6, 2015–June 14, 2015
Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., Baltimore

Center Stage is proud to produce the World Premiere of Marley, the first original musical based on the life and music of cultural icon Bob Marley. With a book and direction by Center Stage Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah, Marley will run from May 6 to June 14, 2015 closing Center Stage's 2014/15 Season.

Marley explores a pivotal period in the singer's life. In 1976, Bob Marley finds himself the target of an assassination attempt. Shaken by this act of violence in the country he loves, Marley leaves for London where he spends nearly two years in self-imposed exile. Chronicling the events surrounding this earth-shaking moment, Marley tells the story of a man transformed into one of the 20th Century's greatest musical icons.


"I'm absolutely thrilled that Center Stage is taking such a bold and beautiful step with this production. Bob Marley has long been one of my personal inspirations, and to be entrusted with his story and his music is an honor I can only hope to repay in some small part by sharing that work with our audiences." —Kwame Kwei-Armah, Artistic Director
