Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs

Tony Award-Winning Best Actor

The award-winning television and Broadway performer comes to DPAC with his acclaimed cabaret that The New York Times cheered “an emotional firestorm.”

Cumming is known for a range work from his Tony®-winning reimagining of the Emcee in Cabaret, his Emmy®-nominated role on TV’s The Good Wife to Shakespeare and the X-Men film franchise. Alan Cumming Sings Sappy debuted at New York City’s famed Café Carlyle and has since traveled through America, Canada and Australia. The cabaret is a collection of songs from the theater and pop world. With music direction by Emmy®-winner Lance Horne, also on piano, and Eleanor Norton on cello and Chris Jego on drums, Cumming offers an array of songs that have deep meaningful connection to his life. From Annie Lennox’s Why and Miley Cyrus’s The Climb, to The Ladies Who Lunch from Company and Rufus Wainwright’s Dinner at Eight, Cumming doesn’t just perform, he molds these songs into an intimate, unforgettable evening. This show is recommended for mature audiences.

Video Screens

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
