Based on the iconic Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard is a stage musical featuring the unforgettable track 'I Will Always Love You'. The live adaptation premiered at the Adelphi Theatre in London's theatre district in 2012, and has continued to stun audiences to this day.
X Factor Winner Alexandra Burke plays singer Rachel Marron, who acquires the protection of Bodyguard, Frank Farmer, after being threatened by a stalker. The two butt heads and seem to row about everything, until romance gets in the way. Burke has been praised for her powerful performances, and ability to fill the shoes of Rachel, originally portrayed by the late Whitney Houston.
The music features an incredible score that tributes Houston's career. 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', 'How Will I Know', 'One Moment in Time', and 'Saving All My Love for You' are all reimagined on stage - it's no wander it was nominated for the 'Best Night Out'. The Bodyguard musical has toured around the world, including two tours in the UK and Ireland.
The show brings a supreme team of creatives together, including a book by Alexandra Dinelaris, production by Michael Harrison and David Ian, and direction by Thea Sharrock. Sharrock has formerly worked with the National Theatre as well as directing a production of The Globe's As You Like It. Now you can watch their magical masterpiece reignite the Whitney magic live on stage!
