Directed by Thea Sharrack, the musical adaptation of The Bodyguard will begin its West End run November 6 at the Adelphi Theatre.  Lloyd Owen will star as Franke Farmer, alongside Heather Headley who takes the role of Rachel Marron (the role played by the late Whitney Houston); the musical will feature songs from the original movie and other musical highlights from the career of Ms Houston.

For our younger readers, the original Bodyguard film starred Houston in the role of Rachel Marron, a soul singer who hires former Secret Service agent Frank Farmer (played by Kevin Costner in the film), as her bodyguard to protect her from a violent, stalker/fan.  The film's stellar soundtrack won three Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
