about production

With a foot-tapping reggae beat in his soul, country boy Ivan arrives in town with dreams of the big time. But the harsh reality of life soon drives him into the fast lane of guns and gangs, ending up torn between love and glory, poverty and fame, life and death.


After triumphs in the West End and North America, The Harder They Come is touring internationally in the 2012-2013 season. This tour marks the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence and 40 years since the iconic film was released.


A tale of broken dreams, The Harder They Come is a rich mix of heady music and dance, sparkling dialogue,low-life and high spirits, good-guys and good-byes...


All the great songs are here...”You Can Get It If You Really Want’, “Many Rivers To Cross” and “The Harder They Come”, accompanied live by a top reggae band.

reviews

What's on Stage
"With classic hits such as “Many Rivers To Cross”, the title track and (You Love Has Lifted Me) “Higher and Higher” – the urge to get up and throw some shapes is fulfilled at the end during the encore. My advice to the doubters; shut up and dance! The Harder They Come is edgy, romantic, funny and gripping. But most of all, it’s infectious – so catch it!"
