5.0 star rating Patricia Higgs from Kent England


How could this musical fail when every song is by Bob Marley. The show has stellar performances and is raw, powerful and very moving.

5.0 star rating Dawn Edwards from London, England


Went to see the show last night.WOW!...So much talent on that stage.It was electrifying. The whole audience were singing.You just wanted to get,stand up, on your feet and dance (which we did at the end).He had such an amazing life(albeit too short) and has touched so many people.His music will always live on through many generations. Would I see it again? With this fantastic cast YES YES YES ! Go see it.Have your heart opened up with love and will come away smiling and singing and not "worrying about a thing"

We attended the show on opening night and absolutely loved it! The cast were incredible and the show did a fantastic job of telling Bob Marlet’s life story, the highs (pun intended) and the lows. The cast had to handle a few first night tech mishaps and did it so well it flowed with the show (those in the theatre that night will understand the “Live!” reference in the subject line. During Redemption Song I looked up on stage and for more than a moment felt like I was watching Bob Marley performing live. It brought me to tears, which was not the only time during this incredible performance that this happened. There was excitement in the room and the audience struggled to figure out how to express it without disrupting the show (Clap? Sing? Dance?) . The show would do well to identify one or two spots where the audience is encouraged to participate (perhaps the songs performed like they are at a concert?) and the first act could use a bit of a pick up, but this 5 stars all the way!

I was a little worried about seeing this show as I didn’t think it was possible to do Bob Marley justice but how wrong was I!! Everything about this musical was electrifying, the singing, dancing and acting of everyone outstanding and yes, the production was simple but nothing else needed as this was Bobs life and less is sometimes more (to the person above… the “boxes” were a perfectly staged Soundsystem;) At one point it even felt as if I actually was at one of his big concerts… very cleverly done! Congratulations to the producer and the whole cast, I will be coming to see the show again!

5.0 star rating Linda from Cornwall


Brilliant night. Loved the music, the amazing voices, the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. It was both funny and sad. We were up dancing in our seats. Would definitely go again.

5.0 star rating Yamina Presto from London, England


I cannot believe how much I enjoyed myself. All my senses were brought out in the light. Thank You to the cast for rendering such a legend’s life, his struggles and failures. And to also bring the whole political aspect into all of it, WOW just WOW… from the bottom of my heart Thank You, not sure anyone can top this !!!!
