Shanice Williams Interviews Audra McDonald at Lincoln Center

Audra and Shanice in the same room? For free!? Where is this going on and how can I be there?

Well, if you’re in New York January 26, you’re in luck. Lincoln Center will be hosting two Broadway Black favorites in an intimate discussion about the craft, career, and WERK of 6 time Tony winner, Audra McDonald.

Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. These are the 6 shows that have pulled Audra McDonald into Broadway heavyweight status. While we love her on the stage, her talent spans to telvesion and the big screen, too. She’s always working and everything she touches turns to gold.

The Wiz Live! alum, Shanice Williams has let it be known that she loves everything Audra McDonald (just like we do) and wants to follow in her path. It’s as if the stars have aligned because not only does Williams get to be coached and mentored through Q&A by her role model, but we get to sit in the audience with our No 2 pencils and college lined notebooks (aka iPhones), soaking up all of this wisdom! Theatrical Director Lonny Price will handle introductions and formalities, but after that it’s all in the hands of Williams. Go Shanice!

Lincoln Center continues to make arts accessible to the community on a large scale. Directors Lonny Price and Matt Cowart have a few new programs up their sleeves. They are rolling out LC Dialogues, LC Originals, and Late Nights at the Atrium; and because of them we have this gem! If this speaks to the caliber of events to come, we can’t wait to see the rest of the programs for this year.

This event is free and admission is first come, first serve. It will be held at the David Rubenstein Atrium at 7:30pm.
