Audra McDonald

Performance
 

“One of Ms. McDonald’s greatest gifts is to find the story inside the song and deliver it with immediacy and clarity… A defining voice of our time.” (New York Times)

Audra McDonald has secured her place atop Broadway’s pantheon with a record-breaking six Tony Awards, the only actor ever to achieve the Tony Grand Slam. She’s won “Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play” (as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill), “Best Featured Actress in a Musical” (Carousel and Ragtime), “Best Featured Actress in a Play” (Master Class and A Raisin in the Sun), and “Best Actress in a Musical” (The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess). Blessed with a luminous soprano and an incomparable gift for storytelling, she is equally at home on Broadway and opera stages and in roles on film and television (Private Practice, The Good Fight). A 2015 National Medal of Arts recipient, she was a founder of Black Theatre United in 2020 and is also a committed advocate for at-risk youth and LGBTQ equality, among other causes.
