Bodyguard Stage Play to Debut This Fall

Broadway singer turned R & B chanteuse, Heather Headley, is set to return to her roots.

According to Playbill, Heather will take on the lead role of Rachel Marron in the stage production of “The Bodyguard,” the film that made late singer Whitney Houston a movie star.

Now for those of you who may think this is all an attempt to capitalize off the death of Houston, think again. This stage page has actually been in production for a while now, and the casting of Headley was originally announced last year.

The play is expected to open in London’s West End this fall, with an eventual run on Broadway to come sometime in 2013.

Heather Headley made her American chart debut back in 2002 with her hits “He Is,” “In My Mind” and “I Wish I Wasn’t.” However, after releasing three solo albums, two of which were certified Gold, Heather took time off to raise the son she and husband Brian Musso had in 2009.

  1. I know Heather will be a smash!!! She will do the music justice, an incredible VOCALIST! She’s done Broadway before and this show should be good for her career and new music!

  2. AS LONG AS HOLLYWOOD DOES NOT EVER IN A BILLION YEARS TRY TO DO A REMAKE OF THIS CLASSIC MOVIE. HOLLYWOOD TAKES CLASSIC MOVIES/ T.V. SHOWS AND CREATE NONSENSICAL MOVIES TARGETED TOWARDS IMMATURE AND SEX CRAZE TEENY-BOPPERS AND UNDERDEVELOPED SIMPLE MINDED 20 SOMETHINGS.

    NOONE IN HOLLYWOOD CAN PULL OFF THE CHEMISTRY THAT WHITNEY AND KEVIN HAD IN BODYGUARD.

    OFF-TOPIC : KEVIN COSTNER AND TYLER PERRY DELIVERED THE BEST EULOGIES OF THE DAY, WHILE I WAS DEEPLY MOVED BY R KELLY, PEFORMANCE. AND MS. DIONNE WARWICK IS THE EPITOMY OF GRACE UNDER PRESSURE.

    THAT IS WHY I LOVE THE OLD SCHOOL, THEY HAVE CHARISMA, GRACE, DIGNITY, SOPHISTICATION , SOMETHING THE YOUNGER GENERATION SHOULD MIMIC.

    R.I.P. WHITNEY HOUSTON-IRREPLACEABLE.

  3. ^^^”That is why I love the old school…”

    *waves handkerchief in the air* Amen!

    I think it would be wise for Hollywood to not touch a “remake” of The Bodyguard for say the next 10 or 20 years. It’s gained a revival with the unfortunate passing of Whitney. They would be foolish to try and recreate that chemistry. I do think that the Broadway show is a great way to honor the legacy of that film and its stars and of course, our beloved Whitney Houston.
