The Bodyguard, a musical based on the fabulous film The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre London.
The Bodyguard, former Secret Service agent Frank Farmer (Lloyd Owen), is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Both of them expect to be in control and the boss, what they don’t expect is to fall in love.
The Bodyguard is a romantic thriller, featuring a multitude of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits, including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, I’m Your Baby Tonight, Run to You, I Have Nothing, How Will I Know, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and of course one of the greatest hit songs of all time, I Will Always Love You.
Review by Natasha Wynn: “Finally the music, a combination of show-within-show performances and jukebox musical style scenes, there rarely appears a moment where someone is just singing for the sake of being in a musical. Classic tunes, combined with slightly lesser known songs make for an evening of entertaining delights, ending of course, with a concert-style performance, where you almost feel you’re watching Beverley Knight instead of Rachel Marron. No complaints there, and in fact and thoroughly enjoyable and inspirational evening entirely”
