Signature Sound Headshot
'The Harder They Come' West End Hit Jimmy Cliff Musical Plays South Florida
by Beau Higgins - May 18, 2009

Hailed by Time Out as 'a real thrill...the band is tight, the clothes are right - it's a sure-fire smash hit,' THE HARDER THEY COME features a cast of 16 Jamaican-born performers and tells the story of young singer Ivanhoe Martin (played by Rolan Bell) as he arrives in Kingston, Jamaica with dreams of becoming a reggae star. A corrupt and drug-fueled music industry drives him into a fast and furious life as Jamaica's most-wanted outlaw and most-celebrated underground star. Reggae music star and pioneer Jimmy Cliff starred in the '70s film of the same title, which catapulted the island's signature sound into a globally recognized and respected genre, turning Jimmy Cliff and reggae music in general, into an international sensation. 'With top-class acting, singing and dancing, [this] superb production faithfully distils not just the movie's music and characters, but also, somehow its soul' (The Standard).
