Star Audra McDonald announces pregnancy

Plans for revised dates will be announced soon

LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR & GRILL

Today it was announced at 6pm GMT that this summer’s season of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill will be postponed as the show’s star Audra McDonald has announced that she and her husband, actor Will Swenson, are expecting a baby.

Speaking from New York where she is currently starring in the Broadway production of Shuffle Along, Or The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed, Audra McDonald said:

“Who knew that tap dancing during perimenopause could lead to pregnancy? Will and I are completely surprised—and elated—to be expecting a new addition to our family. I am so very grateful to everyone in New York and London for allowing me to rearrange my schedule to accommodate this little miracle. Of course, I’m disappointed I have to postpone my West End debut in Lady Day, but I look forward to rescheduling as soon as possible.”

The couple married in 2012. While this is their first child together, she is mother to a daughter, and he is father to two sons, from their previous marriages.
