Audra McDonald Soprano

Bernstein “Somewhere,” from West Side Story

Plus, many more Broadway classics!


Revel in the “lovely, natural, warm sound” (Gramophone) of “a God-touched voice” (The New York Times) when this Tony-, GRAMMY-, and Emmy-winning star of stage and screen returns! Winner of more Tony Awards (six) than any other actress in history, Audra McDonald possesses a blissfully beautiful full lyric soprano and the acting chops to wow audiences even in non-musical performances. Famed for her roles in Ragtime, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, and many more Broadway classics, she has also become a favorite with television audiences for her riveting characters in CBS’s The Good Wife and The Good Fight and the HBO hit The Gilded Age. McDonald is a sought-after soloist, clamored for by fans of show tunes, opera, and the American Songbook. Leading Broadway conductor Andy Einhorn (Hello, Dolly!, Carousel) joins her in a not-to-be-missed performance with Your Philadelphia Orchestra.

Come early for a free cabaret performance in the Plaza.
