NEW YORK , Audra McDonald will be moving from hosting the Tony Awards to a new stage role.
Six-time Tony-winner Adrienne Kennedy will be back on Broadway as the lead in "Ohio State Murders", directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon. The creative team and dates will be announced shortly.
Kennedy, who is 90 years old, will be making her Broadway debut in this production.
"Ohio State Murders," originally commissioned by Great Lakes Theatre Festival, Cleveland, received its world premiere there in 1992, staring Ruby Dee. This was one year after a workshop production at Yale Repertory Theatre.
In 2014, McDonald's won a Tony for her role as Billie Holiday in "Lady Day At Emerson's Bar & Grill."Updated Date: 01 November 2021, 14:30
