With talented performers leading the way, The Bodyguard returns to its rightful home in the West End  as it plays at the Dominion Theatre with Beverley Knight in the lead role.

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. Following its run at the Adelphi Theatre in 2012 it now returns at the former home of We Will Rock You.

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).

Beverley Knight is obviously best known as a singer songwriter who has appeared on stages nationwide whilst releasing numerous singles in the charts such as Greatest Day and Shoulda Woulda Coulda, plus many others.

But in recent years she has also been making her mark on the musical theatre scene, with her appearance in The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre in 2012 earning her great praise. Since then she has appeared in Memphis at the Shaftesbury Theatre and Cats at the London Palladium, but in 2016 she returns to an anticipated revival.

Audiences can see The Bodyguard as it returns to the West End, running at the Dominion Theatre from Thursday 21st July 2016 (previews from Friday 15th July 2016).
