Based on the smash hit film which starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, the musical version of The Bodyguard is returning to London By Popular Demand. Originally seen at the Adelphi Theatre, the show has just finished a successful national tour.
In The Bodyguard, former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge – what they don’t expect is to fall in love.
A romantic thriller, The Bodyguard songs will include 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 I Will Always Love You.
Based on the film written by the acclaimed, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Big Chill, The Empire Strikes Back), with a book by Drama Desk Award-nominated Alexander Dinelaris, The Bodyguard musical is directed by the award-winning Thea Sharrock (Sunshine Boys, Equus, The Misanthrope).
