Hello listeners, and welcome back to an all new Broadway Web!
This month we are celebrating on of the greatest humans on this earth, Audra McDonald. She is now a six time Tony winner in all four acting categories - two things no one else has ever done! You’ll hear signature songs like “Wheels of a Dream” from Ragtime and new hits like “Crazy He Calls Me” from Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar and Grill.
The Broadway Web with DJ Spider Shay has a new show on the first of every month, so make sure to check back here for another all new Broadway Web on August 1st.

This is a 2006 NPR report on the quietly successful career of Marni Nixon. You may not recognize her picture, but you certainly know her voice. From singing a duet with herself in West Side Story to breaking her contract on The King and I, this eight minute piece is well worth a listen.
