The Bodyguard description
There's nothing quite like a gritty love story, where the protagonists face a multitude of problems to overcome before falling happily into one another's arms. This is one of those, a fabulous stage musical with music to die for and characters you'll empathise with from start to finish. The plot is triumphant, the show tunes are beautiful, the sets are fabulous and the acting enchanting.
The original movie soundtrack, starring Houston with Kevin Costner as the love interest, struck a chord with its power and soulful drama, and this latest production carries on the good work, keeping up the shows' reputation for being a legend in its lifetime. There's romance in spades... but there's also high drama and life-threatening danger, adding spice to the story.
What can you expect? Meet the temperamental diva Rachel Marron, a singer whose life is in danger thanks to a mysterious stalker who is hell-bent on killing her. Frank Farmer, her bodyguard, is an ex-secret service agent and as hard as nails.
Rachel doesn't take the threats made by her stalker seriously. But Frank knows they're for real. As a result they collide violently at first, and their dislike of each other is tangible. But Frank soon develops a sweet spot for his charge, and it becomes much more than an ordinary job. He falls head over heels in love and he's determined to keep her alive.
Will Frank succeed in protecting Rachel against her mysterious enemy? You'll have to wait and see. But you can fully expect a classy, grown-up, unconventional romance with characters rich in human flaws and a series of terrifying obstacles to overcome.
You'll adore the pace, too – this is no leisurely musical theatre stroll. It's fast and dramatic, action-packed and exciting, tense and taut. But it's also heart-warming and satisfying. It has already entertained millions of people in theatreland. And it's tipped to entertain a whole lot more of you this time around!
Whitney Houston’s enduringly popular tunes are threaded through the musical, fresh from the film, including Queen of the Night, One Moment in Time, So Emotional and Saving All My Love, I'm Your Baby Tonight, Run to You, I Have Nothing, How Will I Know and I Wanna Dance With Somebody. Plus, of course, the unforgettable classic tune I Will Always Love You.
