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 former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, whose hits include Hallelujah, Broken Heels, All Night Long and Bad Boys.
Burke is joined in The Bodyguard by British actor and former Casualty star Tristan Gemmill, and Carole Stennett, who follows in the footsteps of Olivier Award nominee Debbie Kurup, as Rachel Marron's sister Nicki.
Alexandra Burke is not scheduled to perform at Wednesday or Saturday matinees including any revised matinee performances.
