An Evening with Audra McDonald
About An Evening with Audra McDonald
Experience the magnificent voice and luminous stage presence of Audra McDonald—winner of a record-breaking six Tony Awards and the first performer to win all four acting categories—as she makes her debut at City Center in this intimate digital Gala presentation filmed live on our stage.
Longtime collaborator and music director Andy Einhorn accompanies the Tony, Grammy, and Emmy award-winning McDonald on piano for an evening of songs that showcase her extraordinary vocal range in popular standards from the Great American Songbook and classics from the golden age of Broadway.
McDonald is a passionate advocate for equal rights, LGBTQ causes, and underprivileged youth; and a founding member of Black Theatre United, whose mission is to inspire reform and combat systemic racism within the theater community and throughout the nation.
Your generous support of all streamed performances of the 2020 Gala | An Evening with Audra McDonald will ensure City Center is able to continue its founding mission to provide access to the best in the performing arts to the widest possible audience and to support artists with new opportunities to create and perform.
