Saycon Sengbloh in Bob Marley musical

Saycon Sengbloh, a 1996 Donna Reed Foundation national scholarship winner, landed the role of Rita Marley in the world premiere production of Marley, a musical with music and lyrics by Bob Marley, and written and directed by Center Stage Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah. The production ran May 7 -14 at Center Stage in Baltimore.

Telling the story of a pivotal moment in Bob Marley's life in the late 1970s, when he spent two years of self-imposed exile in London after surviving an assassination attempt in his home in Jamaica, the musical marks the first time Marley's legendary music has been featured in a biographical context on the stage. 

Sengbloh has appeared in Broadway productions of Motown The Musical, Fela!, Hair, The Color Purple, Wicked and Aida.
