All eyes were on Broadway last night, as music theater fans tuned into the 66th Annual Tony Awards in NYC. Broadway veteran Audra McDonald won the Best Actress in a Leading Role award for her show-stopping performance in “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.” The singer and actress has won five Tony awards, and even two Grammy awards for her opera recordings. In this all-black Gershwin revival, McDonald stars opposite Norm Lewis as Porgy, and David Alan Grier as Sportin’ Life.

Check out Audra’s acceptance speech where she talks about finding the theater as a ” little girl with a potbelly and afro puffs” on Styleblazer.com.
