The irrepressible Alan Cumming will be appearing at Carnegie Hall for one night only on Monday February 8, joined by best bud Kristin Chenoweth, to celebrate his newest album “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.”  Along with long-time musical director Lance Horne on piano, his guests will include Darren Criss and Ricki Lake and a special performance by the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus.

Lance Horne will be accompanied by Eleanor Norton on cello, Chris Jago on drums and Michael Croiter on guitar and percussion.

It was back in the Spring of 2015 when producer Daniel Nardicio approached Mr. Cumming, during his run at the sumptuous Cafe Carlyle, about bringing his show to Carnegie Hall for a one nighter.  The new album includes Alan Cumming’s unique interpretations of pop hits – – Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon,” Miley Cyrus’s “The Climb,” Rufus Wainwright’s “Dinner at Eight” – –  musical theater songs “The Ladies Who Lunch” from Company, “You, You, You” from Kander & Ebb’s The Visit, “If Love Were All” by Noël Coward – –  and numbers that Cumming has collected from around the world (“Mother Glasgow” from Scotland, “La Complainte de la Butte” from France, “How Do Humans Live” from Germany).
