The Bodyguard at Milton Keynes Theatre
This award-winning musical had a lot to live up to and, with X Factor winner Alexandra Burke as lead actress, it was a tremendous production of the blockbuster film, The Bodyguard. Three-time Brit nominee, Burke, was captivating and really suited the role of Rachel Marron. Former Secret Service agent, Frank Farmer, is hired as Rachel Marron’s bodyguard, as she needs protection from a stalker. As their time together and relationship develops, there are some unexpected twists and turns to the performance.
The stage set was colourful and impressive. Congratulations must particularly go to the lighting team for some impressive displays. The music team did a brilliant job, and teamed with Burke’s outstanding vocal range, it was a very memorable production. Songs such as One Moment in Time, Run to You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and I Will Always Love You, were performed perfectly. Another fantastic performer was Melissa James (Rachel Marron’s sister in the musical). She stood out as a very experienced, memorable singer.
This was also one of those shows that when you think it’s all over its not; a trend that is happening in more shows to give the audience some participation and leaving with the feel good factor.
There are still some tickets available for this fantastic show at MK Theatre.
Running from: 13th April – 23rd April 2016
