Event Description

Get ready for a Friday night spectacular as part of our Pride Weekend celebrations! The star of the show? The incredible LEA DELARIA! You might know her as the unforgettable ‘Big Boo’ from Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” where she won two SAG Awards. She’s also a comedian, actress, and jazz musician with a career spanning decades.


Lea made history as the first openly gay comic on American TV, which opened doors to a myriad of roles. She’s played everything from Police Lieutenants to PE Teachers, and the Lesbian who inappropriately hits on straight women. You’ve seen her in “Broad City,” “Baroness Von Sketch,” “Will and Grace,” “Awkward,” “Clarence,” “Californication,” and many more. She’s also rocked the big screen in Cars 3, Support The Girls, First Wives Club, Dear Dumb Diary, and Edge of Seventeen.


Her theater accolades include Obie & Theater World Awards, a Drama Desk nomination for ‘Hildy’ in On The Town, and an Ovation nomination for The Boys From Syracuse. Lea’s talent shines in the gender-bending Broadway musical The Rocky Horror Show, where she played Eddie/Dr. Scott.


Lea’s vocal prowess has taken her to iconic venues like Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl, Royal Albert Hall, and Sydney Opera House. She was even the featured vocalist at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival!


With five records on the Warner Jazz and Classics label and her book "Lea's Book of Rules for the World" in its third printing, Lea is a true powerhouse. Her sixth record, House Of David delaria+bowie=jazz, received rave reviews.


Don’t miss out on this night of laughs, music, and pure entertainment with the one and only Lea DeLaria!
