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

It's supposedly a revival of a play by a living writer. (It's not 'night, mother or a production that's been announced)

Sorry to double post, my guess

Limited engagement of Kiss of the Spiderwoman
There was a reading in 2015 staring Audra.

Considering the date was moved up, it’s certainly possible, since it will leave April and May open for rehearsal/previews

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!

Ugh dammit only Amy Morton and Audra could get me to see GGGR again! :P I wish she was coming in an original musical - god knows this season needs a good one - but anything to have her back.

In this season that’s so desperately lacking good musicals, it’d almost be mean of Audra to be in a show and have it not be a new musical.

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

I'm fairly certain she doesn't need to pick and choose her projects based on what awards she might get.

I hope it's not Glengarry.
