Whitney Houston passed away just over 10 years ago and her music is set to come to Broadway sometime soon.
The musical’s producers are eyeing a 2023 premiere for the bio-musical ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody,’ an adaptation of the movie with that same name. The film, which stars Naomi Ackie as Whitney, will be released later this year on December 23rd.
Whitney's longtime mentor Clive Davis is producing the movie, but a spokesperson for the late singer's estate recently told Variety, "[Clive] is not currently involved with the Broadway show, but he is always welcome to participate in anything we do involving Whitney and her music. He has been a critical partner in the movie project." A couple of big things for Whtney Houston fans to look forward to.
