The Broadway @ The Leicester Square brand is one which surfaces infrequently but always pays rich rewards when it does.

Summer theatre highlights in Provincetown, Cape Cod and Boston, including appearances by Audra McDonald, Marilyn Maye, Randy Rainbow, drag bingo and music at Herring Cove beach — plus Moulin Rouge in Boston.

She’s joky, and open, and delightful company – and when she sings, although that Juilliard operatic training diction is ever present and the resonance of her chest cavity empowers even the subtlest line, she exhibits a truly diverse range.
Let’s face it, you do not win six Tony Awards for being average, you win them for being sensational.
One wonders if McDonald, being such an idolised performer in the world of musical theatre can live up to the sheer gravitas behind her name and will deliver?
