"Absolutely thrilling… a defining voice of our time." —The New York Times

Broadway legend Audra McDonald recaptures the concert stage after four seasons on the hit ABC television series Private Practice, and after a record-tying fifth Tony Award® for her unforgettable performance in The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess. Spotlighting the riches of the Library's American musical theater collections, the two-time GRAMMY® Award-winner will perform an intimate evening of favorite showtunes, including songs by Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Michael LaChiusa and others, drawn from her new album, Go Back Home—her most personal recording to date.
