Call him a renaissance man, provocateur, a bon vivant – the Olivier and Tony Award-winning Scottish/American actor, author, and cabaret icon Alan Cumming is a storyteller par excellence. Last in Australia in 2017 for a sold-out run, Alan returns with his latest creation: a joyful, mischievous cabaret production titled Alan Cumming Is Not Acting His Age.

Due to debut at this year’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival, of which Alan has been honoured with being named the 2021 Artistic Director, Alan will then take his remarkable, mischievous stage show to audiences throughout Australia.

Alan’s diverse career has seen him perform in concert halls across the globe, including the Sydney Opera House, the London Palladium, the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall. On the screen and on stage he’s played God, the Devil, Hitler, the Pope, a teleporting superhero, Hamlet, all the parts in Macbeth, Dionysus, a Smurf (twice), the MC in Cabaret (thrice), a James Bond baddie – and political spinmeister Eli Gold on seven seasons of TV’s The Good Wife, for which he received multiple Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG nominations. He has appeared on Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, topless in Playgirl and naked on the cover of his second album.

This will be a bewitching night of showbiz, tunes and life-affirming laughs, and a celebration of that most communal of pastimes: ageing! With his individual, distinctive joie de vivre, don’t miss your chance to spend a magical evening with Alan Cumming!

“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
“In the underpopulated arena of male cabaret singers, Mr. Cumming may be the only one with the talent and drive to change its direction.” The New York Times
“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 apologise.” Billboard
