SHE’S THE MERYL STREEP of musical theatre, with six Tonys to Meryl’s three Oscars, and while La Streep can sing, Audra McDonald can really sing. She’s one of Broadway’s leading lights, bagging those Tonys for Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, Porgy and Bess and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill — the Billie Holiday show that she’s bringing to London after a New York magazine critic hailed her take on the tragic singer as “one of the greatest performances I ever hope to see”.
