Paper Mill Playhouse, in association with Michael Harrison, David Ian and Nederlander Presentations, Inc., presents the North American premiere of the hit new musical The Bodyguard based on the Warner Bros. film written by Lawrence Kasdan, with book by Alexander Dinelaris, direction by Thea Sharrock, choreography by Karen Bruce and music direction by Matthew Smedal, starring Grammy Award-nominated and multi-platinum R&B/pop recording artist and film/TV actress Deborah Cox (Jekyll & Hyde) as Rachel Marron with Judson Mills (Walker, Texas Ranger) as Frank Farmer, the bodyguard.

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."

Performances run through Sunday, January 1, 2017, at Paper Mill Playhouse (22 Brookside Drive) in Millburn, NJ, prior to the official national tour opening at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, MN, on January 10, 2017. Check out photos from opening night below!
