(PBS stations in the New York area are currently not scheduled to air this expanded version of Live From Lincoln Center.)

Filmed at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, the concert showcased five-time Tony Award winner McDonald singing songs from a wide range of musical theatre composers featured on her acclaimed new recording, "Go Back Home" (Nonesuch), her first solo album in seven years.

New to this 90-minute cut of Audra McDonald In Concert: Go Back Home are “My Buddy” by Gus Kahn and Walter Donaldson, “Moonshine Lullaby” from Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, “Stars and the Moon” from Jason Robert’s Songs for a New World and “Virtue” and “Married Love” by Michael John LaChiusa. These additional songs join works by composers featured on McDonald’s May 9 concert (Guettel, LaChiusa, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and Sondheim, among others).

Live From Lincoln Center is in its 38th broadcast season. The series has received 13 Emmy Awards to date.
