The huge success of the 2012 musical - like that of the 1992 film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner - is mostly based on the world-famous songs. The film's soundtrack won a Grammy Award. The title song I Will Always Love You went on to become one of the biggest hits. With over 45 million recordings sold, the Bodyguard is the most successful film music album of all time.

The musical adaptation by Oscar winner Alex Dinelaris created a stage version that is the movie's equal in terms of glamor, excitement and romance. In the German-language production (Austrian premiere!), the songs are sung in English - a moving live experience. A number of Whitney Houston hits that are not included in the film soundtrack provide that gooseflesh feeling in the musical: One Moment in Time, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, I Have Nothing, Saving All My Love and several others.

Patricia Meeden as Rachel

The cast is chosen: the singer, dancer and actress Patricia Meeden will perform the vocally powerful soul diva Rachel. Her bodyguard Frank will be embodied by film and TV star Jo Weil. Musical actress Ana Milva Gomes (Mozart!, Mamma Mia, Sister Act, …) slips into the role of Rachel's sister Nicki.

A pinch of Hollywood

The musical tells the love story of superstar Rachel Marron and her bodyguard Frank Farmer. The former secret agent is appointed to protect the superstar from an unknown stalker - only against her will. Neither the glittering soul diva nor her watchful bodyguard are ready to make compromises - until what nobody had expected happens: the two of them fall in love with one other.
