BWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf TrapBWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf Trap
by Emma Kouguell - Jun 24, 2015

Her ability to capture these narratives through her voice is one of the many reasons Ms. McDonald is such a brilliant actress and singer. The opportunity to see Ms. McDonald work her magic live is enchanting, to say the least. (more...)
