BWW Review: Deborah Cox Lights Up the Stage with Star Power in THE BODYGUARD
by Shari Barrett - May 4, 2017

Grammy® Award-nominated and multi-platinum R&B/pop recording artist and film/TV actress Deborah Cox is starring as Rachel Marron in the first U.S. National tour of the hit musical The Bodyguard during its Los Angeles premiere at Hollywood Pantages Theatre through May 21, 2017. Ms. Cox is not only one of the most incredible singers I have ever seen onstage, her renditions of the many hit songs performed by Whitney Houston in Lawrence Kasdan's 1992 Oscar nominated Warner Bros. film, sound even better than the originals! In fact, in 2000, Cox collaborated with Houston to record the duet "Same Script Different Cast" for Houston's Greatest Hits CD, setting the precedent culminating with this production. (more...)

BWW Review: Stage Adaptation of THE BODYGUARD Makes OC Debut at Segerstrom Center
by Michael Quintos - Jun 6, 2017

First, let's get this out of the way: while sitting through the national tour production of The Bodyguard---the stage adaptation of the late Whitney Houston's 1992 film that boasts the best-selling soundtrack of all time---one thing is absolutely for certain: chart-topping recording artist Deborah Cox is unquestionably a spectacular singer. But sadly, it pains me to say, that Cox's musical contributions---and Houston's musical gems themselves---are pretty much where The Bodyguard itself excels. When Cox and company aren't singing or dancing up a storm, the audience is left with mostly cheesy, overly-exaggerated melodrama, flat, one-dimensional characters, and even at times over-done 'thrills' that make you laugh instead of feel any suspense.
