An Evening with Audra McDonald 

Symphony Hall

Audra McDonald regrets that due to illness, she must reschedule her performance, “An Evening with Audra McDonald” originally scheduled for Sunday, October 22 at 5pm. The performance has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 27, 2024 at 8pm. She looks forward to bringing this show to Boston in February.

Tickets purchased for the original concert date will be reserved for the rescheduled event and will not be reprinted. If you hold tickets for October 22 and wish to attend the February concert, no action is needed at this time.

A message from Audra McDonald:

“I'm so sorry to have to cancel my concert in Boston this Sunday! I’m slowly recovering from being sick for two weeks & the voice is always the last thing to return. (And she’s most definitely still out of the building) I was so looking forward to singing for you all at Symphony HalI. Thank you so much for your patience. I will see you in February!”

 Audra McDonald returns to Boston in a one-night-only engagement with an orchestra of local musicians. An icon on stage and screen, the six-time Tony Award-winning McDonald lends her luminous voice and committed stage presence to Broadway favorites, standards, and much more. 

With Tony wins in all four eligible acting categories, an Emmy Award, two Grammy Awards, countless other theatre honors, and a National Medal of Arts conferred by President Barack Obama in 2015, Audra McDonald is among the most lavishly awarded performers of our time. She is also a passionate advocate for equal rights, LGBTQIA+ causes, and at-risk youth. In 2020, McDonald co-founded Black Theatre United—a nonprofit social advocacy organization that empowers the Black community through social action, influences widespread reform, and combats systemic racism within the theater industry and nationwide. 

“Talent this manifold is too miraculous to deconstruct, but there is at the heart of McDonald’s art a moral radiance, a desire to align beauty with truth and justice. ”

Los Angeles Times

“Audra McDonald is the finest stage actress of her generation. She is nothing short of magnificent.”
