The six-time Tony winner discusses her latest role, Madame Garderobe, on The View.

Six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald made an appearance on The View to chat about her latest on-screen role, Madame Garderobe in the Disney live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

“She’s a diva to say the least,” says McDonald of the opera-singing wardrobe. “She fancies herself the greatest opera singer in the world and now she’s stuck in this castle, in this wardrobe. She’s also very fashionable and loves fashion—so the chance to dress Belle makes her very happy.”

The Bill Condon-helmed film, which also stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and Emma Thompson, arrives in movie theatres March 17.
