AUDRA MCDONALD
7:30 p.m. Reynolds Performance Hall. $30-$40.


This will be a real treat for fans of Broadway as well as good ol' fashioned incredible singing: Celebrated soprano Audra McDonald will be performing two concerts in Arkansas this weekend, at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Fort Smith Convention Center and 7:30 p.m. Saturday at UCA's Reynolds Performance Hall.

McDonald has played numerous roles on stage and screen, winning a record-tying five Tony Awards, most recently for her role in "Porgy and Bess" (Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris are the other five-Tony winners), and two Grammys. She's released several albums on the high-brow Nonesuch label, taking on everything from standards and Broadway faves to songs from contemporary songwriters.

It's not every weekend that an artist of McDonald's caliber comes to town, so if you've been looking for a fun yet sophisticated night out, here's a can't-lose option.
