What a night to remember! My childhood friend and I shared a lovely evening with music that evoked nostalgic memories of our youth. THE BODYGUARD The Musical is now performing in Orange County at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and 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.” This touring adaptation of the 1992 film has been transformed into a sensational musical! Deborah Cox as Rachel Marron is pitch-perfect and brings back timeless love songs back to life. “Run to You” and “I Will Always Love You” is celestial.

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.”
Backstage with Deborah Cox and Judson Mills
I was lip singing during the entire show. Judson Mills as Frank Farmer is stoic and convincing, but also charming. He is a total stud in his role as “the” bodyguard. The choreography is upbeat and we wiggled in our seat to the music during the show. The show ended with a standing ovation, and the audience stood up and danced! We laughed, cried, and sang along throughout the show! My girlfriend and I talked about the unforgettable music and reminisced about our first loves on our ride home. THE BODYGUARD will be in Orange County until June 11th. Please be advised that it contains strong language and mature themes. For more information, please visit their website at www.scfta.org.
