Cabaret

Alan Cumming

Dates

THU 15 JUNE, 2017

Tickets

$79.90–$99.90
Presented by Frontier Comedy

Actor, entertainer, mischief-maker, cabaret doyenne and according to TIME magazine “one of the most fun people in show business”, Alan Cumming has been variously labelled as a “bawdy, counter cultural sprite” by the New York Times and “European, weird, and sexually ambiguous”, by the Guardian. 

Alan is many things to many people – renaissance man, style icon, social activist, bon viveur – but to himself (and the likes of collaborators Stanley Kubrick and The Spice Girls) he is a story-teller and provocateur for hire.

Alan’s decades-rich career has seen him awarded everything from a TONY, to an Icon of Scotland, to OBEs; have a portrait unveiled at the National Gallery of Scotland; and receive nominations for Golden Globe, Emmy, SAG and Satellite Awards. He’s sold out all previous Australian tours, now for the first time Alan brings his unmissable comedy cabaret to Queensland Cabaret Festival for one bewitching night of Vaudevillian showbiz, mischief-making, show tunes, and life-affirming laughs. 

Reviews

Exotic, androgynous provocateur and pansexual pied piper.

New York Times

A formidable all-around entertainer on the level of Hugh Jackman or his friend and sometime mentor Liza Minnelli in her glory days.

New York Times

In the underpopulated arena of male cabaret singers, Mr. Cumming may be the only one with the talent and drive to change its direction.”

New York Times
