NEW YORK (Celebrity Hollywood) -- Bess is taking a rest.

Audra McDonald is temporarily stepping down from her Tony Award-winning role in "The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess" while she recovers from inflamed vocal cords. She is due to return July 3.

Says her spokesman: "No one is more frustrated and disappointed than she is that she will be out of the show through the end of June, but she must adhere t o her doctor's orders."

At this month's Tonys, McDonald was named best lead actress in a musical and her show was named best musical revival.

Late Wednesday, a frustrated McDonald said she's endured cameras and mirrors shoved down her throat and must now be silent. She tweeted: "Want 2 scream but not allowed to speak."
