Cheesy, Good songs, Intense, Great singing, Jump scares

See it if You find being jump scared thrilling! I don’t. Why would you? You love Whitney Houston too. The plot isn’t anything like the film.

Don't see it if You hate jump scares, flashing lights and loud noises.

“ ‘The Bodyguard Musical’ provides a fun, enjoyable evening and excels in its choreography. Thornton and Emily-Mae’s vocals are outstanding, and Callaghan’s comedic timing is impeccable.”

"...this musical encompasses the very best of Whitney Houston's songbook, alongside a cleverly written storyline... Although there were some opening night glitches with some slightly laboured set changes, it didn't take away the audience’s enjoyment. Along with superb sound and perfectly-time lighting cues, this show is credit to the design and production team, as well as those who work behind the scenes.
