Its A Hit

Audra Audra Audra! Headed To A City Near You + Watch Her Live From Lincoln Center

Celebrating the release of her new CD, “Go Back Home” Audra McDonald is everywhere. She just finished a live concert at Lincoln Center which was recently featured on PBS. She now will be in a city near you! Starting tonight McDonald will hit the road starting in Midland, MI. Check out all of the concert dates below. You’ll have until the end of the year to catch the Golden Goddess of Broadway. See her talk about this album as well as performances of a few songs from her concert that aired on PBS in the videos below.

“Go Back Home” features songs by composers with whom the acclaimed singing actress has long been associated (Adam Guettel, Michael John LaChiusa, Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim) and some, like the John Kander and Fred Ebb title track, who are relatively new to her repertoire.

“If there were a Broadway show that were written about my life, especially the last seven years,” McDonald recently said of the album, “this would be the soundtrack.”
