“One of the glories of American musical theater.” – The New York Times
Unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry as both singer and actress, Audra McDonald is blessed with a radiant soprano voice and an incomparable gift for dramatic story-telling. Equally at home on Broadway and opera stages, film and television, her record-breaking six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards and a long list of other accolades place her among today’s most enthralling performers. A veteran of the NBC series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and ABC’s medical drama Private Practice, among others, Audra has also premiered music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams and appeared with virtually every major American orchestra. Here, she performs standards from the American songbook.
