Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs

Sage One

On top of his myriad accomplishments and accolades, Alan Cumming has been hailed by Time Magazine as one of the most fun people in show business! This October UK audiences will have the opportunity to see the full range of this Renaissance man’s talents when he brings his award-winning show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs to Sage One.

Expect intimate secrets and raucous anecdotes, all delivered with disarming emotional honesty as well as his own, very personal reinterpretations of the songs he loves to perform – by Kurt Weill and Noël Coward, Stephen Sondheim and Rufus Wainwright, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

Inspired by his infamous post-show dressing room parties during his Broadway run in Cabaret, Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs premiered at New York’s legendary Café Carlyle and recently sold out Carnegie Hall. He also headlines the Edinburgh International Festival this August.

Actor, writer and activist, Alan is a Tony and Olivier Award-winner and a multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominated worldwide sensation, known for his work in TV (The Good Wife), film (X2, Eyes Wide Shut) and theatre (Macbeth, Cabaret). He is the author of the best-selling memoir Not My Father’s Son, and the forthcoming You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams. He has also been on a postage stamp, guested on Sesame Street and been awarded the OBE by the Queen, whose portrait was taken down in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery when his was unveiled!

He is joined by his long-time collaborator and Emmy-winning musical director Lance Horne. | Twitter
