Broadway @ Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts: Audra McDonald
Broadway,Cabaret,Special Event

Mark Cortale’s Broadway @ Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts series showcases some of Broadway’s brightest stars in the Center’s intimate Virginia G. Piper Theater. Hosted by multi-talented pianist and comedian Seth Rudetsky, these cabaret-style concerts mix popular song with candid showbiz stories. Audra McDonald is a powerhouse performer with a breadth of versatility as both a singer and an actress. She has won six Tony Awards, two Grammys and an Emmy, and in 2015 was honored by President Barack Obama with a National Medal of Arts — the highest U.S. honor for achievement in the arts. When she won her sixth Tony in 2014 for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, the Juilliard School graduate made Broadway history as the award’s most decorated performer.
