BWW Review: AUDRA MCDONALD at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall
by Carolan Trbovich - Mar 16, 2018

Paying tribute to The Great American Songbook and composers such as Lerner and Loewe, Gershwin, Berlin and the likes, Audra started off with 'When Did I Fall In Love' from Fiorello. Pausing before the next song to appreciate Florida's warm and sunny weather, Audra joked that the North has had so many nor' easters that she was losing her color. That got quite a belly laugh and applause from her fans, and it was a good lead in to 'It Might As Well Be Spring' from State Fair. Audra had some fun with 'I Double Dare You' and 'The Facebook Song'. Her smooth vocals took us to a sultry night in the south with 'Summertime' and left the audience astounded with 'I Can't Stop Talking'. How does she move her mouth that fast? (more...)
