Overview

Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs is the name of the hugely acclaimed cabaret show Alan premiered in 2015 at New York's legendary Cafe Carlyle. He has since toured the show extensively throughout the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. In February 2016 he returned with the show to NYC and made his sold out, solo debut at Carnegie Hall, and released a live album of the same name.

The androgynous imp is both quiet and uproarious, adorable and sensual, flippant and emotional, otherworldly and inviting...this is precisely why he's an icon to behold - he is unapologetically himself, and with a talent like that, he has no need to apologize. Billboard

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

From Alan on his first concert show:

“I had wanted to do my own show for a very long time, but I had been terrified at the prospect of singing without the veil of a character. Every now and then when I was very brave, or had been emotionally blackmailed, I would sing a song at a gala or an event as myself, and really was amazed by the connection I felt between me and the audience.

In 2015 he was asked to develop a new concert for a two-week run at New York’s famed Café Carlyle, and decided to make this show his most personal and intimate to date.

Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs premiered on Tuesday, June 2nd 2015 at the Café Carlyle to universal acclaim and ecstatic reviews ...
