Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald will perform at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts for one night on May 11 as part of the acclaimed Broadway @ series. The event will feature two intimate concerts at 7pm and 9:30pm produced by Mark Cortale. McDonald will be joined onstage by Broadway @ series host and pianist Seth Rudetsky.

The evening's performances will feature songs from McDonald's musical-theater repertoire and behind-the-scenes stories, prompted by Rudetsky from behind the piano.

McDonald holds the record for most Best Performance Tonys in history, and she is the only person to win all four acting categories. She earned the accolades for her performances in Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, and Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill. She was last seen on Broadway as Lottie Gee in George C. Wolfe's Shuffle Along, or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed. McDonald will reprise her role as Billie Holiday in Lady Day on London's West End in June.
