Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical
Lyric Theatre, London
World premiere musical from May 2021

‘It’s not all that glitters is gold, half the story has never been told’ - Bob Marley.

Celebrate the story of Jamaica’s global superstar, as the electrifying new production, Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical, bursts into life from June 2021 at the Lyric Theatre, London.

From the hills of rural Jamaica, armed only with his overwhelming talent and righteous beliefs, Bob Marley applied himself with resolute determination to achieve international acclaim for his prophetic musical message – a gospel of love and unity. With unlimited access to Marley’s platinum-selling catalogue of music, the multi award-winning team of Lee Hall, Clint Dyer and Arinzé Kene capture the rebellious spirit and story of this universal icon. 

Not much is known about the musical, however the production is set to include a variety of Marley's greatest hits including "Exodus", "No Woman No Cry" and "3 Little Birds." We've put together a dream playlist for Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Story with all his biggest tracks.

Full casting is currently unknown, but the show will blend a euphoric company of performers with the finest reggae musicians to bring this triumphant tale of passion, political unrest and progress from Trenchtown to the West End. 

‘One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain’ - Bob Marley.
