Now Deborah Cox, a hitmaking dance diva, is starring in the first U.S. tour of the musical “The Bodyguard,” based on the popular 1992 movie starring Houston and Kevin Costner. The musical features songs from the blockbuster soundtrack — the bestselling soundtrack album of all time — plus other tunes from Houston’s catalog, including “So Emotional” and “Saving All My Love.”

The musical premiered in London in 2012 but just arrived in the United States last month in Millburn, N.J. The Orpheum Theatre in downtown Minneapolis, where the show opens Tuesday, will be the second stop on a nearly yearlong tour.
