Broadway star Audra McDonald is set to come to the West End in January to play a one-off intimate concert.

McDonald, a Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner, has starred in shows including A Raisin in the Sun with Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Twelfth Night with Anne Hathaway. As well as television and film work, McDonald regularly stars in operas and has recorded a critically-acclaimed opera album.

Playing the Leicester Square Theatre on 17 January 2016, McDonald will perform a wide range of songs. It will mark over a decade since her last London performance when she appeared at the Royal Albert Hall in 2002 in the Last Night of the BBC Proms.
