Audra McDonald returns to West End

Published January 3, 2017

Record-breaking 6-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald is to return to London’s West End in April for four concerts at Leicester Square Theatre.

Returning to the venue where she completely sold out her shows last year, the Broadway legend will be joined on stage this time by host & pianist Seth Rudetsky, who last month starred in the 5-star London premiere of his Broadway musical Disaster!.

The format of the evening will be a seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from one of Broadway’s biggest stars – prompted by Rudetsky’s probing, funny, revealing questions – and Audra singing some of the biggest hits from her musical theatre repertoire, in a spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs.

The performances will also include a special guest appearance by McDonald’s husband, Will Swenson (the Tony-nominated star of Hair and Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert), and are produced by Mark Cortale.

Audra McDonald In Concert will run at Leicester Square Theatre on April 12, 13, 14 & 15. Press night is Wednesday April 12 at 8.45pm.

Audra holds the record for more Tony Best Performance wins than any other actor in history, and is the only person to win all four acting categories. She married Will Swenson in 2012, and this past October they became new parents to a baby girl.

Tickets can be purchased through the venue’s website.
