Flanders is bombing

This stunning opening piece from Studio Zuid is presented as a “Dinner Show,” which gives audiences not only drama, forbidden love, primal emotions, and universal songs such as “I’ll Always Love You” and “I Have Nothing, Queen of the Night and Running To You,” but also dinner Delicious pre-show, prepared by star chef Dominic Pearson.
Hurricane sound April Darby
The audience at the premiere, including many media companies and most media companies, tasted literally and figuratively everything that was presented, and was full of praise. Especially the sound hurricane April Darby, who made his first appearance in Flanders and that in “The Bodyguard, Musical Dinner Show”. Her portrayal of stalking star Rachel Malone and the never-ending popularity of Whitney Houston. Of course, the numerous positive feedback did not miss its impact, because due to the huge demand for tickets, Music Hall launched additional shows on October 21, 22, 23, 24 and October 27, 2021. And 28, 29, 30 and 31 were added to the playlist!
After the 1992 movie of the same name
Whoever says “bodyguard” immediately thinks of Whitney Houston. This popular pop icon immortalized with a platinum soundtrack (and recordings) the role of star Rachel Malone, who followed in the 1992 film of the same name, with Kevin Costner as her loyal bodyguard. The first comments were not entirely positive, but the commercial success was phenomenal. The accompanying album is the best-selling soundtrack of all time, with over 44 million copies sold to date. The musical version of “Bodyguard” premiered in the West End on December 5, 2012, not only in the UK, but also in China, Australia, France, South Korea, Germany, Austria, Spain, Canada and the Netherlands (850,000 NL visitors!!) to great success.
