Deborah Cox Leads in The Bodyguard Musical
Deborah Cox blessed us with her amazing vocal chords in the Angela Bassett- directed biopic, Whitney, that aired on Lifetime in January.
The award-winning singer and actress is now set to take on Whitney’s role as Rachel Marron in the musical production of the 1992 Oscar-nominated film, The Bodyguard, which starred Houston and Kevin Costner.
Adapted for the stage by Birdman director, Alexander Dinelaris, the musical kicks off its North American tour in the fall of 2016 and will be directed by Thea Sharrock.
The world premiere of THE BODYGUARD launched on December 5, 2012 in London and was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards. It concluded its West End run on August 29, 2014 and is currently touring the UK and Ireland.
Sticking to the plot line of the film script as a romantic thriller, theater attendees can expect to hear Whitney Houston’s hits such as, “Saving All My Love,” “One Moment in Time,”Queen of the Night,” and with out a doubt, “I Will Always Love You.”
Additional casting and full tour schedule will be announced at a later date.
