with special guests WILL SWENSON
and SETH RUDETSKY as pianist & host.
Six Time Tony Award winner AUDRA MCDONALD returns to London for Seth Rudetsky's Broadway @ The Leicester Square Theatre concert series for four performances produced by Mark Cortale. 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 performances will also include a special guest appearance by McDonald's husband, Will Swenson (the Tony nominated star of "Hair" and "Pricilla, Queen of the Desert") and are produced by Mark Cortale.
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.
This is a spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs not to be missed.
Audra McDonald's last series of Leicester Square Theatre concerts were this week named one of 2016's "Best Gigs of the Year" by reviewer Clive Davis of The Times and were among LiveTheatreUK's Top 10 West End Musicals of the year. "Audra MacDonald's Leicester Square Theatre concert was not really a musical, but it certainly counted as one of the greatest nights of musical theatre in the year. McDonald was a complete superstar, effortlessly telling deeply affecting stories through song, connecting intuitively with her audience and singing with a ferocity, a gentle touch, a supremely confident and peerlessly matched tone that simply took one's breath away. Time after time."
