My first time for seeing her live, although I had seen her on PBS - Definitely a star in the industry - She sang for about 90 minutes intermixed with friendly and witty banter with the audience - including talk of her current production of the rewritten "Porgie and Bess" which premieres on Broadway in December
She has won 4 Tonys, 3 before the age of 28, out of 8 Broadway shows (I think).
Well worth the discounted cost of the ticket - looking forward to seeing her on Broadway!!
Earning an unprecedented four Tony Awards (Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, and A Raisin in the Sun), Broadway sensation Audra McDonald brings her luminous voice to the Kennedy Center for an unforgettable evening of selections from the great American songbook.
