I have a ticket to see Audra McDonald perform in Greensboro, NC next spring and just received the following email:

Dear UCLS Patron:

Thank you for your support of the University Concert and Lecture Series- we are so excited about this year's performances!

We have one adjustment to announce. Due to a Broadway commitment, the date of Audra McDonald's appearance at UNC Greensboro has changed.

The new date is March 9, 2019.

Your purchase will be honored for the new date, and new tickets will be issued.

If you find that you are unable to attend on March 9, we will be happy to issue a full refund. Please request refund by October 1, 2018. No refunds will be issued after October 1.

Please confirm receipt of this information by reply to this email.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience.

 

I recall this article from several months ago: https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Audra-McDonald-is-For-Sure-Headed-Back-to-Broadway-20180301

Any guess or info on what it could be?

I still kinda hope they someday bring that revival of "'night, Mother" they were planning with her and Oprah.

The only possible thing that's out there that I can see her going into is "Once On This Island", so I'm going to hedge my bets and say she is either going to do an extended concert engagement in a Broadway house (a la Patti LuPone) or it's an entirely new production that's been really hush-hush to fill one of the upcoming empty theatres

Tony Award nominee Amy Morton is confirmed to direct an all-female cast in the new Broadway production of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS.

The production will begin on Broadway in May 2019. Exact dates, full design team, and Broadway theater will be announced at a later date.

 

i bet it's Glengarry!

Thinking about this today, it would be smart of Audra to do a new musical this season, if only because she’d have virtually zero competition for her 7th Tony award.

Torch song is a VERY small ensemble cast and every announcement re: cast, etc has been announced for a while. The cast photo shoot was released a few weeks ago. So this rules that out.

Not Torch Song. It hasn't been announced yet. This was very early script work.

This is the project I was referring to when I said "It's supposedly a revival of a play by a living writer. (It's not 'night, mother or a production that's been announced)" earlier in the thread.

When it opens, the writer will have two shows running simultaneously on Broadway. It's kind of an odd choice for a revival, but I'll be interested to see how it turns out!

The only thing I can think of that meets these qualifications might be a Terrence McNally piece. Possibly "Lips Together, Teeth Apart" or "The Ritz"?

A different Mamet play could work as well but I can't think of any that fit all the descriptors stated above.

Tantalizingly teased out. Who could it be? Aaron Sorkin? Harvey Feirstein? Kenneth Lonergan? Tarrell Alvin McCraney? Unless it's someone who did the book of a musical. Itamar Moses? 

 

Will now spend the next hour obsessing over what it could be!

Audra returning to Broadway...?
Posted by bwayboy22 2018-09-20 16:37:44


I feel like there is a good chance it could be someone who did the book of a musical, which is why I suggested Terrence McNally. I didn't even consider Sorkin, but I suppose it could be "A Few Good Men". Kenneth Lonergan doesn't really have anything that would suit Audra. I'm not familiar enough with Moses' works to say if any of his plays would be the right fit.

I for one would love to see Casa Valentina on Broadway again (yea yea I know it's too soon). Audra would a phenomenal Rita opposite... oh the casting possibilities!

Audra returning to Broadway...?
Posted by PurpleFanta 2018-09-20 16:43:18


This is a fun puzzle.

Because Bernhardt/Hamlet closes so early in the season, I'm guessing it's not Theresa Rebeck.

Maybe Steven Levenson? Was If I Forget reviewed well Off-Broadway?

Maybe something from Lee Hall? According to his Playbill bio, he did an adaptation of Mother Courage... 

But I immediately went to Terrence McNally. Lips Together, Teeth Apart seems at least logical.

Whatever it is, I hope it gets announced soon.

Audra returning to Broadway...?
Posted by Jordan Catalano 2018-09-20 16:44:57


You sure it’s a play? Because I really want her to do SPIDERWOMAN. And that would be McNally who also has ANASTASIA on broadway.

Posted by InnerMonologue 2018-09-20 16:57:36

Is it a Frankie and Johnny revival?

Posted by natashalost 2018-09-20 17:06:50


Doing a bit of research to try to figure out which show Audra will be in. The only problem is I'm not too familiar with plays so I need some help!

Criteria: Must be a play that has previously been on Broadway, as it is a revival, by a living writer, that will have two shows running simultaneously on Broadway, by the time this opens. (Thanks SomethingPeculiar!)

Here are the possibilities guesses by author! 

Terrence McNally (Anastasia) - The Ritz, Mothers and Sons, It's Only a Play, Deuce, And Things That Go Bump in the Night, Ravenswood, Dunelawn, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune (This show has a major male and female role, and according to SomethingPeculiar she has an Academy award and Tony-nominated acting co-star)

Rick Elice (The Cher Show) - Peter & the Starcatcher

Lee Hall (Network) - The Pitmen Painters

Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots, Torch Song) - Casa Valentina

Aaron Sorkin (To Kill a Mockingbird) - The Farnsworth Invention, A Few Good Men 

Kenneth Lonergan (Waverly Gallery) - This is Our Youth, Lobby Hero

Rehearsals started for Mockingbird today.  Any chance there's been a change in the casting of Calpurnia?  And A Few Good Men does have one woman in the cast (my son was in the play just last year).

Are you considering a revival a show that has previously played off-Broadway but not on Broadway? This is the only thing I can think of that would have made me miss whatever show it is.

I became oddly invested in this thread and once I saw Terrence McNally's name, all I could envision is a Ragtime revival with Audra, made all-the-more poignant by losing our beloved Marin Mazzie, this week.

So it's definitely a play and not a musical?

Haven’t there been whispers of ‘A Few Good Men’ returning to Broadway for a while? There’s a great female lead in that for her...

Isn't NBC doing it as a "live" play with Alec Baldwin?

In terms of the co-star I mentioned...he was Tony nominated for his most recent Broadway role. He won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award but ultimately lost at the Tonys.

Danny Burstein?

I think it's been decided that the actor in question is Michael Shannon.

Let’s hope they keep moving it until the end of time.

Surprised BWW hasn't reported on this, but per Garage Theatre Group's FB, Audra will be performing a reading of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune  On October 29th in Teaneck, New Jersey. They posted a picture of her and another actor who they did not name (I do not recognize him).

TexanAddams18, where do you see that? I can't see anything about Audra on the group's Facebook page or in the event for the reading.

Sondheimite: who the flipping flip is the guy in the picture with her??

 

The guy in the picture is the playwright of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Terrence McNally. (I think that’s an old photo.)

I'd be a little surprised if this is really the revival.

That's the title that had previously been rumored on this thread, Kad.

It doesn't appear to state anywhere that Audra is doing this reading in New Jersey.  She's featured in the documentary, so it seems that the Garage Theatre Company's post is misleading.

Per the NYP

Michael Shannon and Audra McDonald are in talks to star in a Broadway revival of “Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune,” Page Six has exclusively learned.

There is buzz that negotiations are going on to launch the starry production of the play by Terrence McNally — who just celebrated his 80th birthday — next season
