With a 35-piece orchestra conducted by Andy Einhorn, currently conductor of Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella on Broadway, and with Lee Musiker (piano), Mark Vanderpoel (bass) and Gene Lewin (drums) she will explore the vast riches of our Broadway musical heritage.

The title Audra McDonald in Concert: Go Back Home (Friday - PBS, 9pm) derives from the song Go Back Home in the Kander and Ebb musical The Scottsboro Boys.
