Get Up, Stand Up! The Musical

Get Up Stand Up. Three Little Birds. No Woman, No Cry. They're all gorgeous, they're all by the legendary Bob Marley and they all live inside a brand new jukebox-style musical. This fabulous show doesn't just bang out loads of dazzling live hits by the great man, it also weaves the fascinating story of his life. You'll find out how he calmed the violence of the gangs in his home country, Jamaica. And about his personal life as well as the music side of things. It's a fascinating journey into the life and times of one of the biggest pop legends the world has ever seen, so don't miss it.

Who's responsible for all this magic? The brilliant Arinzé Kene stars as Bob Marley himself, following a substantial critical success with a dazzling one-man show called Misty, which wowed audiences at the Bush Theatre and Trafalgar Studios. The musical features a book by the man who gave us Billy Elliott, Lee Hall. It's directed by the Olivier Award winning Dominic Cooke, who brought us the fine recent revival of Follies at the National Theatre, plus a 2020 revival of Hello, Dolly! With the amazing Imelda Staunton. Grab tickets now and discover the man behind the music.

Must see extravaganza!
Growing up listing to the songs of Bob Marley was amazing. Being able to relive his life and the fantastic music was not to be missed. The acting was captivating. The singing however, was the highlight for me. Being a West Indian man, the show reconnected me in more ways than one to, not just Caribbean way, but the musical contribution to the world. A must see. Bring your kids, show them what true art is. There are no dislikes.

Great performers, audience participation encouraged.
Some bad language and short sections of violence but only unsuitable for very young. Actors voices amazing and great use of minimal scenery. Didn’t know what to expect but bowled over and would definitely see again.

Should run for years!
A fantastic show. The whole atmosphere was electric and the standing ovation they received was unbelievable. We would definitely go to see it again and that’s not something we would usually say and we’ve seen a lot of shows! Came out feeling really alive and it’s a real tonic to all the dreadful time we’ve all been living through. Thoroughly recommend

Amazing show
Fabulous show, great story well acted, and singing was amazing, only criticism is that the lighting was very bright for us on the balcony at times, and not enough people working for theatre watching people taking photos through the show, we was asked to wear masks for Covid reasons and hardly anyone did which was disappointing I felt.

Absolutely brilliant

Definitely worth it!

I did not receive my tickets
I can’t leave a review as my tickets should have been emailed to me, I see you have my email address and all correspondence be it phone or email was not replied to so I spent £200 on tickets for my brothers 40th birthday that I did not get
