On Saturday I went to go and see The Bodyguard in theatre with my mum and sister as a late 21st present.
To make things easier we were going to get the train as the theatre is practically right next to it in Liverpool. They weren’t running, so we had to drive. Luckily we had enough time to get there and then walk from the echo arena to the theatre!
I couldn’t wait to sit down! Usually I’d complain that I don’t drink when I go anywhere due to me driving all the time but I chose to be a big kid and have a raspberry slush and wine gums haha.
Anyway, the show started with a loud gunshot which made everyone jump out of their skin! I vaguely remember the film so it was my fault for not watching it before hand.
The girls were such amazing singers throughout! The only downfall was the audience. I’m not one to be dull but, when the someone wolf whistles the bodyguard as a joke more than once it tends to become a sad act.
It was getting to the point where everyone started doing it and the girl playing Rachel Marron couldn’t even be heard through the audience.
I was quite disappointed when I found out that Alexandra Burke wasn’t playing the part of Rachel Marron during any day shows. I was really looking forward to her performance, however the girl how did play her during the day was amazing!
During the show they used songs of Whitney’s which were newer too as well as the old ones. The finale was amazing! Everyone ended up giving a standing ovation and began dancing and singing. The cast got everyone to join in.
I would of loved to of seen one of Whitney’s shows while she was alive. This show was such a good way of remembering her incredible voice!
It was such a good show! If you ever get the chance to go and see it make sure you do! You’re missing out!
Hope you’ve all had a great bank holiday weekend!
