Part of the Central Park SummerStage series, An Evening with Audra McDonald and Liz McComb is being presented in collaboration with Carnegie Hall and will be offered at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield. Concertgoers should enter the park at 69th Street and Fifth Avenue on the East Side or at 72nd Street and Central Park West on the West Side.
A four-time Tony Award winner for her work in A Raisin in the Sun, Master Class, Carousel and Ragtime, Audra McDonald was also seen on Broadway in Henry IV. The singer-actress made her solo Carnegie Hall concert debut in an evening of songs scored for big bands, performing several tunes from her Nonesuch CD "Happy Songs." McDonald's other solo recordings, "Way Back to Paradise" and "How Glory Goes," are also on the Nonesuch label. The acclaimed actress also co-starred in the NBC series "Mister Sterling” and was recently seen in the WB series "Bedford Diaries." McDonald also made her Houston Grand Opera with a double bill of Send (who are you? I love you) and La Voix Humaine.
