Opening night of “The Bodyguard” the musical, at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in OC was a night to remember. My childhood friend and I shared a lovely evening with music that evoked nostalgic memories of our youth… This incredible musical brought us back to our High School years with classic songs like, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “One Moment In time.”

Thank you Segerstrom Center Of the Arts  for the complimentary tickets to see The Bodyguard Musical. All Opinions are my own.

This touring adaptation of the 1992 film has been transformed into a sensational musical!
“The Bodyguard” is about taking chances in love and the unfortunate price of stardom. It is suspenseful, romantic, and dramatic…

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 romantic thriller, THE BODYGUARD features a host of irresistible classics including “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.”

Deborah Cox is pitch-perfect and brings back timeless love songs back to life. “Run to You” and “I Will Always Love You” is celestial. I was lip singing during the entire show…

Judson Mills is stoic and convincing, but also charming. He is a total stud in his role as Frank Farmer “The Bodyguard.”

The choreography is upbeat and we wiggled in our seat to the music during the show.​Segerstrom Center Bodyguard

The show ended with a standing ovation and the audience stood up and danced! We laughed, cried, and lip sang… My girlfriend and I talked about the unforgettable music and reminisced about our first loves on our way home.
