Alan Cumming returns to New York's legendary Cafe Carlyle with his new cabaret show Alan Cumming: Legal Immigrant. He last appeared here in 2015 when he premiered Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs to huge critical acclaim.
I have admired Alan Cumming since first seeing him in the 1998 Broadway revival of “Cabaret.”...Nothing, however, prepared me for the emotional firestorm that Mr. Cumming detonated at Tuesday’s opening-night performance...In the underpopulated arena of male cabaret singers, Mr. Cumming may be the only one with the talent and drive to change its direction. - Stephen Holden, the New York Times.
In a brazen act of geographical and demographical dichotomy, in addition to the 8.45pm shows at the Carlyle, Alan will perform the same show at midnight, downtown at Joe's Pub.
