Tony Award nominee Will Swenson (Les Misérables) is set to make his 54 Below solo debut with a series of concerts from September 16-19. The performances will feature a special guest star each night starting with Swenson's wife, six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, on the September 16.

Each of Swenson's concerts will be a night full of songs and stories. Additional guests for other engagements are to be announced.

Swenson was most recently seen on Broadway as Javert in the Tony-nominated revival of Les Misérables. His additional Broadway credits include Priscilla Queen of the Desert; 110 in the Shade; and the 2009 revival of Hair, for which he received a Tony nomination. This summer, Swenson and McDonald starred together in the Williamstown run of Eugene O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten.

Audra McDonald has won Tony Awards for her performances in Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, and Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill. Her many television appearances include four seasons as Naomi Bennett in Private Practice, as well as Law & Order: SVU, The Bedford Diaries, and more.
