After the sudden death of Whitney Houston on February 11th the soundtrack for The Bodyguard has risen to the top of the charts yet again. This upcoming fall an adaptation of the movie will be playing at the Adelphi theater in London and Heather Headley will be playing the role originated by Whitney Houston. The Chicago Tribune reports that the show is highly anticipated and that a specific date for the opening has not been chosen yet.
