Audra McDonald said: “London is one of my favourite cities on the planet — I love it so much. There was a time when I was working and performing in London at least once a year. I’ve missed it so very much so the fact I’m getting the chance to return in this way is a joy for me.
“Come on out because I can’t wait to see you all. It’s been a while and I can’t wait to be in a theatre with you again.”
