If there was any doubt that Audra McDonald is one of the world’s most brilliant actresses, all one has to do is see her in her portrayal of Billie Holiday in the HBO presentation of “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill,” which earned her a record-breaking 6th Tony Award.
Thank you, HBO, for bringing this Broadway hit to television. Audra found every nuance and captured the true persona of the late Lady Day. Bouquets to her and the supporting cast for a mesmerizing evening of theater. The only thing better would be to have been lucky enough to see the production on stage in New York City. Thank you, Audra!
