"Audra McDonald stuns upon entrance, exit and everything else" - The Los Angeles Times

The six-time Tony Award winner returns to NJPAC to perform a mix of show tunes, classics from the Great American Songbook and pieces written expressly for her by leading contemporary composers.  Also, expect to hear selections from her brand-new album, Sing Happy, recorded live with the New York Philharmonic.  For this engagement, she will be accompanied by Andy Einhorn (piano), Mark Vanderpoel (bass) and Gene Lewin (drums).  Don't miss her only area engagement during her current 2018 North American Concert Tour!

In addition to her brilliant stage work (Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, Ragtime, Master Class, Shuffle Along and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, to name just a few), McDonald has lent her talents to television (NBC's The Sound of Music, Private Practice) and the big screen (Hello Again, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast).
