Singer/actor Alan Cumming gives new meaning to the word versatile. The guy has done it all: he’s had gigs as a political maverick (The Good Wife
), a “pansexual pied piper” (Cabaret
), a cartoon-character voice (The Smurfs
) and an “all-knowing, affable host” (PBS-TV’s Masterpiece Mystery
When he brings Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs to Connor Palace on Dec. 4, he’ll offer up “a raucous and emotional firestorm of wildly entertaining stories — from sassy to sentimental” as he takes on songs from such diverse artists as Noël Coward, Stephen Sondheim, Miley Cyrus and Adele.
The show serves as a recreation of his famous Carlyle Hotel cabaret residency, an act that began as post-show entertainment in his dressing room during the Broadway revival of Cabaret
, for which he won a Tony Award. Cumming has also won Golden Globe, Emmy, SAG and Satellite Award nominations for his work in theater, TV and film.
