Orange is the New Black’s ‘Big Boo’ is coming to the FAC for one show only! The much loved and outspoken actress, comedian, musician and gay icon brings her very honest, comedic best to the stage, mixes it up with some jazz tunes and delivers a show packed with funny, enlightening and inspiring moments. Besides countless TV appearances, Lea DeLaria 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, and the Royal Albert Hall to name a few. With five jazz recordings under her belt, House of David (as in Bowie), was released in 2015 to critical acclaim.
