Audra McDonald and her daughter, Zoe, hit the red carpet in style on Sunday (March 23) as they attended opening night of the Broadway musical Les Miserables together. The actress and her daughter went to cheer on McDonald’s hubby, Will Swenson, who was one of several cast members in the play. Audra and Zoe looked fabulous in the spotlight as they showed off their style by wearing pink and blue.

McDonald has told media that motherhood gives her more drive. “When you become a parent, it blows you open in ways that you never thought possible, in terms of a level of love that I know I never thought I could possibly have. I think Joan Rivers is the one who says, ‘You’re only as happy as your least happy child. That’s as happy as any parent can ever be.’  And I think that’s so true,” says the star.


Zoe is Audra’s daughter with ex-husband Peter Donovan. The actress wed Will Swenson on October 6, 2012.
