Alan Cumming is known and loved for his audacious characters. But when he took part in the American Songbook Series in 2009, he discovered he enjoyed performing as himself. Thus, Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs was born. Filled with bawdy jokes, intimate personal stories and clever pop mashups, this mischievous cabaret will fill hearts with humor and tenderness alike.
