The Bodyguard

Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road, London, United Kingdom, W1T 7AQ

The Bodyguard, the award-winning musical based on the smash-hit film, returns to London this summer for a strictly limited season starring the Queen of British Soul Beverley Knight as Rachel Marron and Ben Richards (Hollyoaks, Footballer’s Wives, Grease, The Full Monty) as Frank Farmer.
