GP Benefit Concert: Lea DeLaria Sings Bowie

Lea DeLaria: House of David

Known as “Big Boo” on the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black, Lea DeLaria brings her loving tribute to David Bowie to the WaterCourt stage for a benefit concert supporting Grand Performances programming. The multitalented comedian, singer and two-time SAG Award-winning actress reworks the David Bowie catalog for the Los Angeles premiere of the critically-acclaimed showstopper.

From a smooth bossa nova interpretation of “Golden Years” and an acid jazz funk fusion of “Jean Genie” to a soulful rendition of “Fame” and a roof-raising gospel take on “Modern Love, DeLaria evokes the style and artistry of the Thin White Duke.

“Bowie is not only a god of rock and arbiter of style, but he’s THE defining singer songwriter of the latter part of the 20th century,” said DeLaria. “He is quite simply a legend. David’s music lends itself perfectly to the language of Jazz.”

This benefit will help support Grand Performances' work in the community including workshops, master classes and audience discussions between visiting artists and Los Angeles school children, musicians and community groups.
