About The Bodyguard

'The hottest ticket in town'
Sunday Mirror

The international, award-winning smash-hit musical based on the blockbuster film, The Bodyguard is back!

Following her triumphant West End run and sell-out UK Tour, three-time Brit nominee and X-Factor winner, Alexandra Burke* returns to the role of Rachel Marron.

Leading the cast will be Alexandra Burke as Rachel Marron. Alexandra will be joined by Benoît Maréchal as Frank Farmer, Micha Richardson as Nicki Marron, Peter Landi as Bill Devaney, Craig Berry as Tony, Gary Turner as Sy Spector, Phil Atkinson as The Stalker and Simon Cotton as Ray Court. At certain performances the role of Rachel Marron will be played by Carole Stennett.

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.

A ‘brilliant!’ (The Times), breathtakingly romantic thriller, The Bodyguard features a whole host of irresistible classics including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, Run to You, I Have Nothing, Greatest Love Of All, Million Dollar Bill, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and one of the greatest hit songs of all time – I Will Always Love You.

‘You go in humming the tunes, you come out whooping them!’ The Independent
