Audra McDonald Has Returned To Broadway As Billie Holiday

5 time Tony award winner, Audra McDonald has returned to Broadway this season in the musical Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. You may remember the Billie Holiday inspired play with music when Dee Dee Bridgewater starred in it off-Broadway earlier this season. This just feels like a good fit for McDonald. The jazzy and soulful music will allow her to showcase her voice in a way she hasn’t and couldn’t with Porgy & Bess or the recent Sound of Music, Live!.

“You’re invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written.”  – Lady Day On Broadway

Now in Previews. Opening Night April 13.
