The Drama League honored five-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald at The Drama League's 29th Annual Musical Celebration of Broadway last night, February 11, 2013 at the famed Pierre Hotel (2 East 61st Street). BroadwayWorld was there for the celebration and you can check out photos below!

Broadway, TV and Film stars Taye Diggs and Phylicia Rashad hosted the annual black-tie gala, featuring dozens of stars from Hollywood and Broadway in a one-night-only evening of musical selections drawn from Ms. McDonald's career. Rounding out the list of celebrity guests were Tony Award winners Tyne Daly, Judith Light, Julie White, and Broadway veterans Jayne Houdyshell, Phillip Boykin, Bobby Steggert, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Eddie Korbich, and Caissie Levy. They joined Tony Award winners Brian Stokes Mitchell, Patti LuPone, Zoe Caldwell, Anthony Crivello, Broadway veterans Victor Garber, Norm Lewis, Mary Testa, Tony Sheldon, Michael Arden, Seth Rudetsky, and New York State Senator Tom Duane.

The Musical Celebration of Broadway Honoring Audra McDonald raised much-needed funds for the vital education programs of The Drama League Directors Project. Since 1984, The Drama League has honored exceptional artists whose talent and passion have served as a benchmark for others, including Kristin Chenoweth, Liza Minnelli, Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Chita Rivera, Rosie O'Donnell and Terrence McNally.
