Audra McDonald made Tony Awards history June 8, becoming the first actress to win six Tony Awards in all four competitive acting categories.
Her record-breaking win for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play was for her uncanny performance as the late Billie Holiday in the Broadway premiere of Lanie Robertson's music-filled play Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill.
While McDonald did not perform on the Tony Awards, she has shared her performance as Holiday in various television appearances.
A cast album of the play was recorded live by PS Classics and will be released July 15.
