Broadway Buzz: Porgy and Bess Star Audra McDonald Spends a Day at the Spa on Side by Side by Susan Blackwell

February 29th, 2012 | By Staff

One might not expect four-time Tony winner and Juilliard-trained star Audra McDonald to discuss scatalogical urges while singing or dish on whether Taye Diggs, Sean “Diddy” Combs or fiancé Will Swenson is the best kisser, but that’s the wonder of Susan Blackwell—she inspires total honesty! In this hilarious Side by Side, the Porgy and Bess star holds nothing back as she discusses what's in her onstage "happy dust" at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre, her girl crushes on her Private Practice co-stars and her ongoing "rivalry" with five-time Tony winner Angela Lansbury. See McDonald let her hair down during a spa day with Blackwell, and keep your eyes peeled for an exclusive clip of the star performing as a child. Click below and get comfy with Audra McDonald and Susan Blackwell!
