Audra McDonald’s Historic Night

SIX-Time Tony Winner Audra McDonald Makes History (in Two Ways) with Lady Day Win

Audra McDonald makes history at the Tony awards.

Five-time Tony winner no more! Audra McDonald made history in two ways when she took home her sixth Tony Award for her performance as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.

Not only has she become the first person to win in all four performance categories, but she has also broken the record for the most Tony Awards won by a performer. McDonald beats a record that she held with fellow winners Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris (Harris also received a Lifetime Achievement Special Tony in 2002). McDonald is also the first to win in all four performance categories.
