Beverley Knight Extends Run In The Bodyguard Due To High Demand
Posted on 6 December 2013
Producers of The Bodyguard have confirmed that Beverley Knight has extended her run in the starring role of Rachel Marron until 31st May 2014. Knight joined the show in September this year and has received high praise from critics and audiences for her performance. Many cannot believe the role marks her acting debut.
The role of Rachel Marron was originally played by Heather Headley when Thea Sharrock’s production of The Bodyguard opened in November 2012. Whitney Houston famously played the part in Lawrence Kasdan’s 1992 Oscar nominated Warner Bros. film which the stage version is based on. The Bodyguard recently announced that it had extended its West End run at the Adelphi Theatre until 30th August 2014, with over 300,000 tickets going on sale.
