2017/2018 Kravis On Broadway
Apr 10, 2018 - Apr 15, 2018 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall
Based on the smash hit film, the award-winning musical will star Grammy® Award-nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox. 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. A breathtakingly romantic thriller, THE BODYGUARD features a host of irresistible classics including “Queen of the Night,” “So Emotional,” “One Moment in Time,” “Saving All My Love,” “Run to You,” “I Have Nothing,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and one of the biggest selling songs of all time – “I Will Always Love You.” Based on Lawrence Kasdan’s Oscar-nominated Warner Bros. film and adapted by Academy Award® winner (Birdman) Alexander Dinelaris, THE BODYGUARD had its world premiere in London’s West End where it was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical and won Best New Musical at the Whatsonstage Awards. The Southern Daily Echo raved, “It started with a gunshot and kept us on the edge of our seats from the outset. Exciting, thrilling, uplifting, moving – THE BODYGUARD is a truly exceptional show! … A five gold star-winning show. Miss it at your peril!”
Deborah Cox is not scheduled to perform at the Wednesday and Saturday matinee performances.
