"The Bodyguard" Musical Coming to West End in Fall 2012

The previously announced musical adaptation of the 1992 Whitney Houston film The Bodyguard has confirmed that it will play at the Adelphi Theatre. It has also been confirmed that Heather Headley, a Tony-winner for the 2000 Broadway production of Aida and Grammy-winner for her 2010 R&B Gospel Album Audience of One, will be playing the Whitney Houston role. The production will be directed by Thea Sharrock.

According to, "The Bodyguard starred Houston as soul-singing film diva Marron, who hires a former U.S. Secret Service agent, Frank Farmer (played in the film by Kevin Costner) as her bodyguard for protection from an obsessed and violent fan." This is the film in which Houston performed her famous cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You."
