How I loved watching Audra McDonald cry! There it was, the Tony Awards broadcast from last weekend, which was recorded at my house for chunks of happy viewing. Last night I saw McDonald win her sixth Tony, becoming the first performer ever to win six Tonys in competitive categories.
Yes, she cried.
For years I have loved this glorious singer and charismatic performer. While viewing Audra McDonald’s reaction to her big win, I watched as the skilled empath I have become over the years. I watched and listened during the speech; I observed her later in the broadcast, tear-free — all the emotional flow reminding me of weather changes in Hawaii.
