Audra McDonald Is Looking to Return to Broadway
Audra McDonald, four time Tony winner, is looking to return to Broadway in a production of Porgy and Bess. Having left her TV gig on Private Practice after four years, she is preparing to star in a production of the show at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that she hopes will bring her back to New York. The production will open at the A.R.T in September of this year. This production is a re-imagining of the George and Ira Gershwin opera and is being put together by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks and composer Diedre Murray.
