Five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, who last appeared on the New York stage in the acclaimed revival of Porgy and Bess, has a new Broadway project in the works.
McDonald revealed plans for a Broadway return in an interview with the L.A. Times. "I am looking at heading to Broadway again sometime soon. I can't say right now what it is, but... there is a project. And it will probably pop up next on Broadway," McDonald teased.
Representatives for the actress could not elaborate on the project, but did confirm to Playbill.com that a future Broadway project is in development.
McDonald is currently performing her concert evening Go Back Home across the U.S. She will play Mother Abbess in the live NBC television presentation of The Sound of Music in December.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
