With talented performers leading the way, The Bodyguard appears in front of audiences at the Adelphi Theatre under the direction of Thea Sharrock. This musical adaptation of the hit movie has gained a lot of attention since its arrival in the capital as it is one of many productions over the years to have its roots in a well known Hollywood film, from The Lion King to Billy Elliot The Musical, and it can now stand up alongside them.

In the story we are introduced to Frank Farmer, portrayed by Kevin Costner in 1992, who is a bodyguard assigned to protect the singer Rachel Marron, played by the late Whitney Houston on the big screen. During the course of their interactions we witness as a romance blossoms between the two.

The movie is famous partly because of its signature song I Will Always Love You, which was originally written by Dolly Parton but was popularised on the soundtrack to The Bodyguard as sung by Houston. The stage show also features musical numbers made famous during Whitney Houston’s career, as well as hits from the likes of Chaka Khan, such as Queen Of The Night, How Will I Know, One Moment In Time, I’m Every Woman and the 1987 hit I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).

The popular production is directed by Thea Sharrock, who is a renowned talent with work that has appeared in the capital for many years. In 2012 she directed Danny DeVito in The Sunshine Boys at the Savoy Theatre, whilst her previous credits included Ruby Wax: Losing It at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Cause Celebre at the Old Vic Theatre, After The Dance at the Lyttelton National Theatre and The Misanthrope at the Comedy Theatre (now the Harold Pinter Theatre). So with an impressive track record it is no wonder The Bodyguard has emerged as one of the most talked-about shows in town.

Audiences have been flocking to see The Bodyguard on the stage of the Adelphi Theatre since Wednesday 5th December 2012 and it is currently due to continue at the venue for some time to come.
