REVIEWS

It’s Audra McDonald’s world—we’re all still just living in it… most of us would pay just to hear McDonald recite availability on the TKTS board, and her recreation of Holiday’s voice was just swell to my ear… the real pleasure in “Lady Day” is the patter…

Let’s just say you could hear a pin drop in this rapt house. It’s a known fact that McDonald is a majestic singer... But it’s her extraordinary sensitivity as an actor that makes McDonald’s interpretation memorable

-----Variety CONTINUE READING
If you close your eyes, you'll swear that the ghost of Billie Holiday is haunting the Circle in the Square Theatre… While both of this season's Billie Holiday-centered shows focus on the legendary singer near the end of her life, this one is a bit surer about its format and is consequently more focused… The thunderous applause McDonald (and, by extension, Holiday) receives at the end of this bravura performance is enough to exorcize any specter. When she's finally gone, however, we're left wanting much more
