Houston's Society for the Performing Arts presents actress-singer Audra McDonald at Wortham Theater Center. Accompanied by Houston native and Rice alum Andy Einhorn, McDonald will grace the Brown Theater stage with an evening of favorite show tunes, unforgettable songs from the movies and original pieces written especially for this extraordinary artist who The New York Times
calls "ravishing of voice and Olympian of stature." She's no stranger to Houston, having made her opera debut in 2006 with the Houston Grand Opera. One of only three actresses to win five Tony Awards, McDonald has been honored for her parts in Broadway's Carousel
, Master Class
, A Raisin in the Sun
and, most recently, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess
. Praised for her luscious, classically-trained soprano voice, McDonald has also won two Grammy Awards. In addition to her stage and studio work, McDonald was also a member of the ensemble cast of the ABC hit drama Private Practice
from 2007 to 2011, and has been in several feature films.
