Tony-winner Heather Headley made her long-awaited return to the stage in London’s The Bodyguard last week and reviews suggest that, while the book might be rough around the edges, the star and direction are showstoppers. The adaptation of the Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston thriller stuffed with a jukebox full of Houston songs is now eyeing a Broadway run in Spring of 2014, according to the New York Post.

Is it just me or has Headley, always a gifted performer, done some major work on those top notes and found a new range/control for her voice? Very cool.
