Lea DeLaria seems to have achieved overnight stardom with her SAG Award winning, stand-out role as ‘Carrie ‘Big Boo’ Black’ in the Netflix hit series “Orange is the New Black.” However, DeLaria’s multifaceted career as a comedian, actress and jazz musician, has in fact, spanned decades. Lea was the featured vocalist at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival, and has performed in some of the most prestigious houses in the world including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl, The Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Her sixth record, House Of David delaria+bowie=jazz, was released this summer to critical acclaim. See her perform this record live at the BCPA.
