Audra McDonald and Will Swenson tie the knot
Congratulations are in order for two of Broadway’s finest.
Five-time Tony winner Audra McDonald and Great White Way vet Will Swenson said “I do” on Oct. 6 at their home in Croton-on-Hudson in Westchester, a representative for McDonald confirmed Oct. 7. McDonald wore a dress designed by Esosa.
“Well that was just the best day ever. #SadieSadiemarriedlady,” tweeted McDonald, who nabbed her latest Tony this year for her role in “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.”
McDonald, 42, has an 11-year-old daughter, Zoe Madeline, from a previous marriage, while 38-year-old Swenson — who most recently graced the stage in “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” and is in rehearsals for Manhattan Theatre Club's new rock musical "Murder Ballad" — has two sons: 11-year-old Bridger and 8-year-old Sawyer, also from a previous marriage.
McDonald, who also starred in ABC’s “Private Practice,” and Swenson look forward to their new life together as husband, wife and “wee posse of three,” McDonald’s rep said.
The couple started dating in 2010, and got engaged this past New Year's while on vacation in Puerto Rico.
