Speaking of Audra McDonald -- as we were yesterday -- it turns out that the six-time Tony-winner stopped in to visit The Late, Late Show with James Corden while in Los Angeles on her concert tour to participate in an amusing sketch, "Inappropriate Musicals. Along with Corden and Dan Stevens (from the live-action Beauty and the Beast and Downton Abbey), the trio performed scenes from three fictitious musicals which never should have been musicals.
I have a feeling that this was recorded separately from the show. It appeared Monday night after her Sunday concert, but during her concert she explained (during shouts for more encores) that they were leaving after the show to fly up to San Francisco. Also, there are several costume changes in the sketch that would seem to take longer than the time allotted if done live, which makes me suspect all the more that this was taped in advance.
