It's always hard not to compare a musical to the original movie but if you get the chance to see The Bodyguard - The Musical take it, I promise you, you won't be disappointed! From the onset you get to hear Rachel Marron's spectacular voice (played by Alternate Samantha Mbolekwa), she opens with 'Queen of the Night' and if you're a fan of the movie you'll get to hear all the songs on the soundtrack including some bonus Whitney songs:- 'How will I know’, ‘One Moment In Time’ and of course the showstopper ‘I Will Always Love You'
Frank Farmer (Ayden Callaghan) is hired to protect superstar Rachel from a stalker, he is charismatic and has great chemistry. They unexpectedly fall in love with lots of twists and turns along the way. Sister Nicki Marron is played by Emily-Mae who was equally as fantastic. Kaylenn Aires Fonseca played Rachel's son Fletcher, a great little actor who is going to be one to watch in the future.
The ensemble was a talented bunch of dancers and the set and costumes all added to the fantastic show. At the end you get the chance to jump out of your seats and sing and dance with the cast for their encore. Amazing atmosphere and a really good night out.
The Bodyguard is on until 4th March, click on the link to book your tickets
