I recently went to see the world premiere of Marley at the Center Stage theater in Baltimore featuring the music and lyrics of Bob Marley. It was a great evening of music, song, and dance. It was made even more special as I went with Junior Marvin, guitarist for Bob Marley’s band from the Exodus recording to his passing, as well as with Dermot Hussey, the award-winning reggae radio personality and historian. We gathered before the play for a jam session in my hotel room.

Washington artist Bill Adair came along too and brought his Bob Marley Door from his Golden Doors to Infinity series. The door was set up backstage and the cast members of Marley signed and marked the Bob Marley Door. Washington artist Carlotta Hester photographed the scene.
