First Look: Deborah Cox Takes On Whitney Houston’s Role In ‘The Bodyguard: The Musical’ National Tour

Posted August 8, 2016


Whitney, Whitney, Whitney…even in death, Whitney Houston is still a hot topic. Following covers of her songs done the past week by Ariana Grande (HERE) and Keke Palmer (HERE), now we have a first look at her good friend Deborah Cox, playing the iconic singer herself on Broadway.

As previously reported, Deborah is taking on the role of Rachel Marron in the national tour of Whitney’s iconic film ‘The Bodyguard.’ Now, courtesy of People, we get an exclusive first look at Cox in her role.

In the exclusive First Look photo, Cox shines in costume designer Tim Hatley’s sparkly blue sequined, feathered dress that’s accented with a stunning blue necklace fit for any “Queen of the Night.”

Based on Lawrence Kasdan’s Oscar-nominated 1992 film, The Bodyguard features a score filled with Houston’s irresistible classic songs, including “Saving All My Love,” “I Have Nothing,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” “One Moment in Time,” “So Emotional,” “Queen of the Night,” “Run to You,” “I’m Your Baby Tonight” and her timeless cover of “I Will Always Love You.”

The tour kicks offs at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse this November before making stops in more than 20 U.S. cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Nashville, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Diego and Dallas. A full list of stops – and ticket information – can be found at the show’s official website.
