If you’re looking to make the early-week blues go away, check out the Wharton Center’s featured production of the Bodyguard which premiers today. The play is based on the film of the same name and follows the story of superstar Rachel Marron. Marron is a pop singer who hires Frank Farmer, a former secret service agent-turned bodyguard, to protect her from an unknown stalker who threatens her.
