About this show

The Harder They Come, the reggae musical based on the 1972 Perry Henzell film that launched Jimmy Cliff onto the world stage, transfers to the West End after sell-out seasons at the Theatre Royal Stratford East and the Barbican Centre, which both received rave reviews. The musical tells the story of a country boy who makes for the bright lights of Kingston, Jamaica. With a head full of songs, including "You Can Get It If You Really Want", "Many Rivers to Cross", "Higher and Higher", "Rivers of Babylon" and "The Harder They Come", he dreams of becoming a reggae star. When the harsh reality of the music scene drives him into a fast and furious life as an outlaw, he would rather die than kill his dream.
