ICON – Still harder than the rest

The Harder They Come has been described as a ‘cult classic’ so many times it has become cliché. It has now been immortalised on stage, another tribute to a warts-and-all movie that showed how the other half lived in Jamaica.

The musical version of director Perry Henzell’s powerful 1972 drama about a country boy who comes to town looking to break into the music business, opened at the Theatre Royal in Stratford, England two weeks ago.

With a pre-dominant Jamaican cast, the show is scheduled to end its run in the summer.
