The Bodyguard Musical - Review

Friday, 19 June 2015

Today I thought I would do a slightly different post to what I normally would do. On Tuesday night, my mother very kindly treated my sister and I with tickets to see 'The Bodyguard - The Musical' in Cardiff Millennium Centre. My mother also came along to see the show. If you weren't aware, I am OBSESSED with musicals, I love them and going to see a show is probably one of my favourite things to do. We had really good seats in the theatre and we could see the stage perfectly. If you weren't familiar with the story of 'The Bodyguard', it's about a recently turned bodyguard that used to be a secret service agent, his name is Frank Farmer. Frank is hired to protect Rachel Marron,who is a global superstar, from an unknown stalker. They both clash at first and really don't get on but things then take a romantic turn. 

This musical is also a film and features both Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston.  Alexandra Burke took the lead role of Rachel Marron and completely blew me away, her voice is amazing. Each of the cast members suited their roles perfectly and did an amazing job. All of the songs in this musical are by Whitney Houston and includes many classics, such as 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', 'I Have Nothing' and of course 'I Will Always Love You'. I have always loved Whitney Houston and her music, so I knew this musical would not disappoint. At the end of the musical, Alexandra Burke had everyone up dancing in the audience which was so much fun and really ended the night on a high. I really recommend this musical and would definitely go and see it again.
