The upcoming production will see Cox starring as Rachel Marron, the same character that the late singer portrayed in the Oscar-nominated Warner Bros. film. You can expect to see Deborah cover many of the hits from the soundtrack, including “Saving All My Love,” “Run to You,” and, of course, “I Will Always Love You.”
Deborah, who is a big Whitney Houston fan, recently told ABC News that she’s always focused her career on passion projects.
“I came into this business with the intention of having longevity and I think because I’ve been a person who really doesn’t do things that aren’t authentic or that don’t speak to me, I think that’s served me well in the long run,” she says. “It’s ultimately about being passionate about things that I do and when I’m passionate it just keeps my level of interest going, because I get board very quickly and it also just is authentic.”
Directed by Thea Sharrock, The Bodyguard musical will launch in the fall of 2016.
