The love story first seen in classic 90s movie The Bodyguard is brought to the stage in a fantastic musical adaptation featuring original screen star Whitney Houston's unforgettable back catalogue of pop hits.
When a former Secret Service agent, now a bodyguard, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from a stalker, both expect to be in charge. Neither expect to fall in love.
Based on the hit film of the 1990s starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, The Bodyguard features a host of chart-topping hits, including Queen Of The Night, So Emotional, One Moment In Time, Saving All My Love, I’m Your Baby Tonight, I Have Nothing, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and the iconic, chart-dominating I Will Always Love You.
The cast of The Bodyguard is led by multi award-winning British soul sensation Beverley Knight MBE, whose hits include Come As You Are, Shoulda Woulda Coulda and Greatest Day.
Knight is joined in The Bodyguard by British actor and former Casualty star Tristan Gemmill, and musical theatre regular Debbie Kurup, who recieved an Olivier Award nomination for her performance as Rachel Marron's sister Nicki.
Please note, Beverley Knight does not perform in Wednesday or Saturday matinee performances. She is scheduled to appear until 31 May 2014, but will be on holiday on 24, 27 & 28 February.
