FILE - This Oct. 26, 2013 file photo shows actress Audra McDonald backstage after her concert at the LA Opera in Los Angeles. On Tuesday, March 11, 2014, McDonald auditioned dogs to work with on Broadway in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill," a musical that imagines one of Billie Holiday's last performances in 1959. The dogs had to enjoy being held, get along with other animals and people, and weigh less than 15 pounds. The final 14 had been whittled down from an initial group of close to 100 dogs. A winner _ picked on a score that incudes appearance, demeanor and physicality _ will be announced in the coming days. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File) less
