So last night I attend the Adelphi Theatre to watch the most anticipated “The Bodyguard” musical based on the film featuring Whitney Houston. If you know me, you know I’m a huge Whitney Houston fan I love her so much, I feel like her talent was just so raw and unique she was a diamond something rare and indestructible, talent wise I mean. Obviously Whitney had problems but who wouldn’t she was such a huge star and obviously had demons to battle with, while her life was portrayed to the public. Anyways I went with my friend Denzel to go see The Bodyguard. The theatre was so beautiful the design was very elegant but welcoming at the same time, this was my first time going to a London musical since I was a teenager so it felt so weird to actually waiting to see a musical.
I cant hardly remember much because I was in such ore of the theatre while I took my seat, The musical began with a loud bang literally a gunshot! Me screaming “FUCKING HELL” the show started with a bang and ended with a explosion. Soon as the show started Denzel and me was quickly drawn in to an amazing choreographed and well acted show. All of the audience were having such a great time reliving some of Whitney’s greatest hits and number one classics.
Beverly Knight who played Whitney Houston’s character Rachel was brilliant. To be honest I’ve never really listened to Beverly Knight’s music since her song “Should Woulda Coulda” I loved that song but never really rated her voice, but WOW! Beverly sure can hit them notes because home girl wasn’t playing when it came to giving it the fullest Whitney she could give. Beverly was truly a delight to watch she really made the show what it was because I was having the best time just listen to her rein act some of my favourite Whitney songs such as “So Emotional” & “I Will Always Love You”
The set of the show was astonishing I still don’t get how they were able to change sets and have an amazing background throughout the show. All of it was very realistic and sometimes I forgot I was watching a musical I got lost within the story.
To conclude I wont tell you most of the story or what happened but all I’m going to say is go and watch the show and be amazed, entertained and excited.
