January 23, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

The Bodyguard has officially made it to the West End! The smash-hit film was made extremely famous by leading actor Kevin Costner and his lady Miss Whitney Houston.

We have heard the stories of how Whitney had a lot to prove with this being her first main role in a film and hands down, she blew audiences away!So now it could be said that the Broadway actors have a lot to live up to.The premiere was last night at London’s Adelphi Theatre and the show will continue to run up to September 26th 2013. Now if you still haven’t seen the film it’s definitely a good idea to watch this before experiencing the story unfold on stage. We believe in seeing the original before the re-make; it’ll be an even greater experience if you have full knowledge of the storyline and background of the story.Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer (Lloyd Owen), is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron (Heather Headley) from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge – what they don’t expect is to fall in love.Referred to as a ‘romantic thriller’ you will also be going through a rollercoaster of emotion as some of Whitney Houston’s classic songs will be incorporated into the show. Hits such as ‘Queen Of The Night’, ‘Run To You’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, ‘I Have Nothing’ and ‘I Will Always Love You’ will have you wrapped up in your not so typical love story filled with dramatic events.The Bodyguard is the show to watch in 2013.Buy your ticket today.Image Source: ATG Tickets
