Date Posted: 15/04/14
Fans of Alexandra Burke should head to London to see The Bodyguard musical where the former X Factor winner will be playing the lead role from June 2nd.
The singer and Brit Award nominee will be playing the part of superstar Rachel Marron, which was made famous by Whitney Houston in the 1992 movie of the same name.
Burke said of her new role: “I couldn’t be more excited about joining the cast of The Bodyguard and to play the iconic role of Rachel Marron will be a dream come true. I am a massive Whitney Houston fan so to be given the opportunity to play a role made famous by her every night will be a real privilege.”
Featuring iconic songs such as ‘One Moment in Time’, ‘Queen of the Night’ and ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’, the musical tells the tale of a pop star who is harassed by an unknown stalker and falls in love with her bodyguard.
The musical will be playing at London’s Adelphi Theatre until August 30th. See Burke in the production during a London theatre break.
