The Bodyguard Reviews

"... Director Thea Sharrock has done a remarkable job. Her production... is far more enjoyable than the movie. And there is a thrilling star performance from the Trinidad-born, American-based singer and actress Heather Headley, who, when it comes to selling a song, hitting the high notes and ornamenting a number with vocal swoops and trills, struck me as being at least as fine a singer as Houston in her heyday, if not even better. With all the big Whitney Houston hits superbly delivered by Headley and a cracking pit band, I suspect it is destined for a long and lucrative run. Charles Spencer, The Telegraph ★★★

"It's refreshing that, despite its obvious American roots, this is a new musical that has been developed in Britain. And it's a feelgood show to boot." Henry Hitchings, London Evening Standard ★★★

"Those turbocharged portamenti with which she slides upwards into a different key and onto a new plane of intensity and those stratospheric swoops and swirls make your stomach lurch with delight. You go in humming the tunes; you come out whooping them." Paul Taylor, The Independent ★★★★
