Lea DeLaria to Host the 2015 Obie Awards
The American Theatre Wing and The Village Voice are thrilled to announce that Screen Actors Guild® Award-winning “Orange is the New Black” star and OBIE Award®-winning actress Lea DeLaria will host the 60th Annual OBIE Awards, which will be held on Monday, May 18, 2015 at Webster Hall (125 East 11th Street). Tickets to the 2015 OBIE Awards are now available via www.ObieAwards.com.
“When I was a teenager, I used to read about actors receiving Obies,” said DeLaria. “I thought to myself how cool it would be to have an Obie, then some 20 years later, I was given one. At that time I thought to myself what could be cooler than winning an Obie? Now some 18 years later I know, it’s hosting The Obies. I could not be more excited.”
