It has been announced that performances of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, due to run at the Wyndham’s Theatre have been postponed.
The news comes as the production’s star Audra McDonald has happily announced her pregnancy.
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.”
Audra and her husband married in 2012 and while this is their first child together, she is mother to a daughter, and he is father to two sons, from their previous marriages.
