Audra McDonald

While stars of films and television get most of the shine, some of the biggest talent in America is on Broadway, which will be honored at this year's Tony Awards on June 8. Here's our rundown of ten Broadway actors you should know.

Audra McDonald is a five-time Tony winner and might make history if she nabs another this year for her epic performance as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill. Although you may have seen her in Private Practice, McDonald prefers the stage over Hollywood.  One of the most heralded actors on Broadway, if Audra is attached to a show, it's automatically a must-see.
