The Bodyguard Chicago Tickets
The Bodyguard Chicago TicketsThe 2012 stage musical The Bodyguard is a faithful adaptation of the hit 1992 film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. Written by Lawrence Krasdan, the story is about a former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard and the singer he is hired to protect from a stalker. The popularity of the film owed much to the quality of the soundtrack, which shattered records, sold more than 17 million copies and earned a Grammy for Album of the Year. The musical event now comes to the stage of Chicago for a special performance.
One Moment in TimeThe Bodyguard was adapted for the stage by the Oscar-winning Birdman screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris Jr. When writing the book, Dinelaris Jr. made several changes to the plot. Although the story arcs remain mostly the same, he expanded the role of certain characters and incorporated a love triangle into the story. Dinelaris Jr. also had to find a way to make the songs fit organically with the plot when previously they were mere background music. When it premiered, The Bodyguard ran on London’s West End between 2012 and 2014 with a cast of Lloyd Owen and Heather Headley. Thea Sharrock (also known for After the Dance and Happy Now?) served as the director. During award season, the show received four nominations from the 2013 Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Best Actress in a Musical, Best Performing in a Supporting Role and Best Set Design. It also won the Best New Musical at the Whatsonstage Awards. After its premiere in London, The Bodyguard has appeared in tours all over the world, including the United States, Australia, Korea, Europe and the rest of the UK.
