Broadway couple Audra McDonald and Will Swenson get married
Tony-award winner and former Private Practice star Audra McDonald married fellow Broadway actor Will Swenson on Saturday night at their home in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, according to People. The couple met in 2007 and got engaged on New Year’s while vacationing in Puerto Rico.
The marriage is the second for both McDonald, 42, and Swenson, 38, who each have children from their previous relationships. The newlyweds told People that they look forward to their new life together as husband and wife and “wee posse of three,” referring to the three children they now share (between the ages of 8 and 11).
After her four-season stint on ABC’s medical drama Private Practice, McDonald most recently starred in a well-received revival of Porgy and Bess on Broadway. The show ended a 322-show run in September, and earned McDonald her fifth Tony.
Swenson most recently appeared in the Broadway production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. His next stage show — the rock musical Murder Ballad — is slated to open on Nov. 15.
