Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner brought old-fashioned romance back to the big screen with their 1992 smash film The Bodyguard. Alexander Dinelaris adapted the film into a musical and made a few changes along the way. Rather than focus on ex-Secret Service guy Frank Farmer, Dinelaris centers the story on singer Rachel. And while Whitney is not going to take the stage to belt out "I Will Always Love You," the musical is loaded with additional Houston hits, and the romance still sweeps the show along to a dramatic conclusion. The Bodyguard the Musical is presented Tuesday through Sunday (October 3 to 15) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $35 to $105.
