LOS ANGELES — Broadway superstar Audra McDonald is adding a new chapter to her long history with Lincoln Center.
The singer-actress is the new host of “Live From Lincoln Center,” Lincoln Center said Tuesday.
McDonald will emcee seven broadcasts from December through spring 2013, starting Dec. 13 with “The Richard Tucker Opera Gala” and Dec. 31 with the New York Philharmonic’s New Year’s Eve gala.
“It’s a great honor. I’m thrilled that they came to me and trusted me to do it,” said McDonald, 42, whose five Tony Awards include a trophy this year for “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.”
