Sunday Divas!

 Audra McDonald
of Fresno, CA,
first started her involvement with theatre
to "cure her hyperactivity."
Theatre beats Ritalin any day.

 At the recording session for
"Baltimore"...part of her Go Back Home album
done in 2003.

 As Billie Holiday,
in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar And Grill,
where Ms. McDonald earned her new "middle name."

 ...and as the title character
in Marie Christine, a Michael John LaChiusa musical.

 Carol Channing
and her "Diamonds" in
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 1949.

 Snuggling up to Horace Vandergelder's cash register,
in Hello, Dolly!, her signature role.

 ...and as Muzzy Van Hossmere
in Thoroughly Modern Millie, 1967.

 And Bernadette...

 Conferring with Stephen Sondheim
during the production of Sunday in the Park with George,

In Song and Dance,
the creation of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Horrid, simply horrid reviews, except for BP,
who was called "an unimpeachable peach."

...and live in concert.
