Audra McDonald brings such breadth of skill and depth of feeling to the Roundabout Theater Company revival of "110 in the Shade" that she threatens to burst the seams of this small, homey musical. Ravishing of voice and Olympian of stature, she's an overwhelming presence"
Ben Brantley, New York Times
In the middle of a heat wave in 1930's Texas, when everyone is longing for rain, or a breeze, Lizzie Curry (McDonald) is on the verge of becoming a hopeless old maid. Her wit, intelligence and skills as a homemaker can't make up for the fact that she can't find true love. Even the town sheriff, for whom she harbors a secret yen, won't take a chance. However, when a charismatic rainmaker named Starbuck (Kazee) enters the town and her family's life, Lizzie's world is turned upside down.
Four-time Tony® Award winner Audra McDonald returns to the Broadway stage having most recently won a Tony® for her performance in the 2004 Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun.
