    Listen: Audra McDonald Talks with Alec Baldwin on WNYC's "Here's the Thing"
    Autumn DeWilde

    Audra McDonald—who is starring as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill at Wydnham's Theatre on London's West End through September 9—spoke with Alec Baldwin about her life and storied career as the guest on the latest episode of Baldwin's Here's the Thing podcast from WNYC Studios.

    "Much like the staggering beauty of her voice, Audra McDonald is impossible to ignore," says Baldwin. "The only artist to sweep all four acting categories at the Tonys, she's one of the most decorated Broadway star of all time. Reviews of her award-winning performances overflow with accolades: she's 'spellbinding,' 'radiant,' and 'wrenchingly human.'"

    You can listen to what McDonald had to say in the episode below.

    Audra McDonald has released five solo albums on Nonesuch Records: Go Back Home (2013), Build a Bridge (2006), Happy Songs (2002), How Glory Goes (2000), and Way Back to Paradise (1998).

    'Tis the season to be jolly with holiday songs! To add our merry to the mix, we've created Nonesuch for the Holidays, a playlist of holiday tunes both classic and soon-to-be-so from The Staves, Chris Thile, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle with family and friends, Boston Camerata with eight centuries of Christmas music from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque, and, of course, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, performed by the New York City Ballet Orchestra—plus, on Spotify, an exclusive from Rostam.

    Chris Thile was joined by fellow Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge and Noam Pikelny as they sat in with the band on his radio show Live From Here at The Town Hall in NYC on Saturday. For a post-broadcast encore, they performed "My Oh My," from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, with guest Jon Batiste. You can watch it here. Also on the show were St. Vincent (with Thomas Bartlett on piano) and Sara Watkins.
