Alan Cumming

Sings Sappy Songs

'So hilarious, flirty and gorgeously filthy that it's hard to decide if you want him as a new best friend or a lover' ★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald

On top of his myriad of 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 Brighton Dome.

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.

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

‘In the underpopulated arena of male cabaret singers, Mr. Cumming may be the only one with the talent and drive to change its direction’ New York Times

'Heart, soul and a bit of cheek' ★★★★ Guardian

'He's an icon to behold -- he is unapologetically himself, and with a talent like that, he has no need to apologize' ★★★★ Billboard

'This is cabaret as confessional; a show that unpicks its star’s personality.' ★★★★ Financial Times

★★★★ Telegraph

★★★★ Evening Standard
