International hit musical The Bodyguard returns to the West End starring Beverley Knight.
Based on the Oscar nominated film starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, blockbuster musical The Bodyguard will play a limited 6 month run at the Dominion Theatre.
Starring Britain’s Queen of Soul Beverley Knight as superstar Rachel Moran and Ben Richards as Frank Farmer, The Bodyguard is the smash-hit romantic thriller featuring Whitney Houston’s greatest hits, including Queen of the Night, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and – of course – I Will Always Love You.
The Bodyguard runs from 15 July 2016 to 7 January 2017 at the Dominion Theatre.
Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don’t expect is to fall in love.
