Mc Donald won her history-making sixth Tony in 2014 for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in [email protected] and I are overjoyed to welcome Sally James Mc Donald-Swenson, born last night at pm.
actress and Broadway veteran Audra Mc Donald has tied the knot with her theater actor fiance Will Swenson!
"It's a really quick process up in Williamstown," Mc Donald said, "but I think the [rehearsals are] going well." But, as used to this process as Mc Donald and Swenson may be individually, it's unique because it is happening side-by-side between one of Broadway's most high profile couples.
But, Swenson joked that although it's been a long time since in our living room three times a week, but that's just for us." In fact, where many couples would pick their partner last from a long list of possible coworkers, largely due to work styles and work personas, sometimes unexpected things can happen in surprising situations.
Audra Mc Donald is unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry as both a singer and an actress.
The winner of a record-breaking six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy Award, she was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of 2015 and received a 2015 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama.
Both highly acclaimed performers, Mc Donald a six-time Tony Award winner and Swenson a Tony Award nominee, they're known too for being highly professional, but still common knowledge often says not to work with a loved one.
The event includes a nominees cocktail reception, luncheon, and awards presentation, to be held at the Marriott Marquis Times Square in the Broadway Ballroom (1535 Broadway) on Friday, May 19, 2017 beginning at a.m. Swenson join a roster for The Drama League Awards that includes the recently-announced 2017 Drama League Special Award Recipients: Grammy and Emmy Award-winning icon Bette Midler will receive the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theater Award; Bill Berloni will receive the Unique Contribution to the Theater Award; and Tony Award-winner Michael Greif will receive The Founders Award for Excellence in Directing.In fact, Swenson says he is learning more about his wife as an artist having the opportunity to work with her on a show from its early genesis through the run. But she's like, 'wait, this isn't making sense to me, let's talk this out, let's make sure this works.' The way that feeds into what's coming up, it just keeps everything grounded in truth instead of having these little puddles of non-truths that could really trip you up."Because I've never really worked up a show with Audra I feel like I'm learning things about her that I had no idea about," he told me. You think you know somebody pretty intimately but there's this huge part of Audra that I haven't ever really got to experience," he added. I feel like I'm learning something every day the way that she is this truth-seeking missile who will absolutely mine a moment within an inch of its life to find the truthfulness in it and the way that that has a ripple effect throughout the coming moments." Swenson then humbly added in a way that only a truly confident actor and loving partner would be willing to reveal to an interviewer: "If she doesn't believe something, I would... I'm just learning a lot from working with her." Mc Donald then added that she would say the same about her husband.She received the Drama League's Distinguished Performance Award in 2012 for her performance in The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess.Will Swenson was last seen on Broadway in Disaster! Prior to that he starred on Broadway as Inspector Javert in the hit revival of Les Misérables and in Priscilla: Queen of the Desert (Drama League Nomination); he received a Tony, Drama League and Drama Desk nomination for his performance as Berger in the Broadway revival of Hair.
