THE BODYGUARD at the Birmingham Hippodrome

October 17, 2015

I saw THE BODYGUARD THE MUSICAL in the West End a few years ago and I was not particularly impressed. However this show has been transformed for the UK tour. Gone are the dreary white curtains floating across the stage, replaced by a light framed series of expanding frames creating a more dynamic set.

The show is high energy from the beginning with concert quality stage production that really filled the auditorium at the Birmingham Hippodrome. I even did not really mind the hokey plot because it dovetailed well with the musical numbers. Most all of this story at its centre has a mega star and Alexandra Burke more than lives up to that role. She is a real diva and gives an absolutely powerhouse performance.

Great night out in Brum!
