Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis perform for a Greene Space audience (Matthew Septimus)

The Greene Space kicked off the second half of the 2011-2012 season with Soundcheck host John Schaefer  showcasing two very different takes on American popular song. First, four-time Tony Award winner and television actor Audra McDonald took the stage with her “Porgy and Bess” co-star Norm Lewis and discussed her return to Broadway - and performed favorites from the newly reworked American opera. Then, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten gave us a sneak preview of songs from her upcoming record, called “Tramp.” 

 

Below, watch Four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis perform “You Is My Woman Now” from “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess,”
