Alan Cumming

Legal Immigrant


The irrepressible Alan Cumming celebrates the USA in what he calls “a true old-fashioned cabaret — a smorgasbord of genres, styles and tales, laughter, tears and, of course, provocation!” This eclectic concert features classic anthems by Sondheim, Édith Piaf, Adele, Marlene Dietrich and many others.

“Mr. Cumming…has grown into a formidable all-around entertainer on the level of Hugh Jackman or his friend and sometimes mentor Liza Minnelli in her glory days.” — The New York Times
