Lea Delaria Live at The Bridge Theatre

Published on 30th October 2018

Lea DeLaria, ‘Big Boo’ on Orange is the New Black, brings her live show to the Bridge Theatre for one night only. ‘(DeLaria) swings hard, and scats and bends notes in a style that suggests a no-frills Betty Carter on steroids.’ (The New York Times) Known for her frank outspoken politics and big personality, DeLaria is not one to shy away from comedy that will bite hard and elicit gales of laughter. Her new show features hits from her latest album House Of David: delaria+bowie=jazz. and shows off not just DeLaria’ s comic genius but her spectacular vocal range in songs such as ‘Fame’, ‘Young Americans’ and ‘Let’s Dance’. With a velvet-smooth voice contrasting perfectly with razor-sharp wit and sassy stage presence, this will be a spectacular performance. Tickets: £39.50 & £25 Book here.
