THE BODYGUARD, the award-winning musical based on the smash-hit film, is currently wowing audiences at the Adelphi Theatre starring three-time Brit nominee and X-Factor winner, Alexandra Burke* as Rachel Marron, with Tristan Gemmill (Casualty, London’s Burning) as Rachel’s bodyguard, Frank Farmer.

Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge – what they don't expect is to fall in love.
