Broadway star Audra McDonald is to return to London with a series of concerts at the Leicester Square Theatre in April.

The six-time Tony Award-winning actress, whose credits on Broadway include Ragtime, Porgy and Bess and Shuffle Along, will perform four concerts from 12 to 15 April 2017, with guests including Seth Rudetsky (Disaster!) and McDonald's husband Will Swenson.

McDonald, the only person to win a Tony Award in all four acting categories, will perform songs from her hit shows as well as behind-the-scenes stories from her career on Broadway.

In May last year McDonald postponed the West End transfer of her show Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill when she became pregnant. New dates have yet to be confirmed.

Audra McDonald will appear at the Leicester Square Theatre from 12 to 15 April.
