with Seth Rudetsky
Broadway @ The Art House
July 11 & 12
Mark Cortale and BROADWAY AT THE ART HOUSE present LEA DELARIA for two shows only. Orange is the New Black star LEA DELARIA joins series host and SiriusXM radio star Seth Rudetsky at the piano.
LEA DELARIA seems to have achieved overnight stardom with her stand-out role as Big Boo in the Netflix hit series Orange is the New Black. And while she went from being able to walk around a city with the occasional “hey it’s you” to not being able to walk into a Dollar Store in a suburb without getting asked for a picture, the fact is, Lea has been a professional lesbian for over 30 years. Before that, she freelanced.
Lea was the first queer comic to perform on television in America which launched her into world recognition.
Prior to her success on Orange she worked extensively in both Film and Television, Awkward, Californication, The Oblongs, One Live to Live, Law and Order SVU, Will and Grace, Friends, The First Wives Club, Dear Dumb Diary, Fat Rose and Squeaky, and Edge of Seventeen.
Her on and off Broadway credits are numerous, her stand outs include her appearance on Broadway in “On the Town,” for which she won Obie and Theatre World awards, as well as a Drama Desk nomination; an Ovation nomination for her performance in “The Boys from Syracuse;” and playing both Eddie AND Doctor Scott in the Broadway revival of “The Rocky Horror Show.”
If that’s not enough, Lea has five, records out on the Warner Jazz and Classics label and her book “Lea’s Book of Rules for the World” is in its third printing at Bantam Doubleday and Dell.
