GREAT SETS PRODUCTION VALUE GREAT

Love Deborah Cox great costumes great sets. Was wondering how many songs she sings live during the show. Saw the show Sunday night great story line. Have tickets for another show in December but like live singing. The paper mill was a wonderful venue

WONDERFUL!

I can't even begin to explain how wonderful this play was. The tribute to Whitney was one of a kind. Excellent show. And Deborah? Wow. Some notes sounded as if Whitney herself were singing them. Perfect cast! Please go see this. You will NOT be disappointed! Wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

SPECTACULAR SHOW!

Wow!! The Bodyguard had it all! Deborah Cox has a voice that would not quit and emulated Whitney perfectly singing her songs. First rate all the way. The story had suspense, love, passion and above all, dancing, singing and an encore that would not quit! The stage presentation and electronics were great. Everything worked out perfectly. True professionalism. Kudos to all involved in the show.

OUTSTANDING!

This show was an amazing trip through Whitney's wonderful music, delivered by a truly talented pair of actresses. It's not exactly the same plot as the movie, but it's done well enough and updated sufficiently to reflect the current time , that any plot modifications are easily absorbed. Music fans, not just Whitney Houston fans will be, at times, jubilant at the buoyant music, and at other times, reflective at the sheer talent, now lost to us with Whitney's passing. Overall, it's a great romp, a solemn reminder of the price of celebrity, and a beautiful tribute to the legacy of Whitney's music. One of the best parts of seeing this show for the first time is saying repeatedly to yourself, "oh yeah, I remember this song!", and occasionally, saying to yourself, "I forgot how very MANY truly great songs this woman sang." Prepare yourself for a fantastic and unforgettable 2 hours! Totally worth it.

THE BODYGUARD

I don't know about anyone else but I truly thought this was sensational. You cannot do a comparason but if you looked at this production as just a musical story it rocked. I totally loved it and wish I could see it again. Voices were pitch perfect. If it comes back to Chicago I definatly will go again!
