Alan Cumming: Legal Immigrant

Legal Immigrant, a collection of musings on his ten years as a US citizen, growing older and what it feels like to be an immigrant in today’s America (regardless of your prefix) begins with a show-stopping opening of Kander & Ebb’s “The Singer,” Stephen Sondheim’s “Old Friends” and “Not A Day Goes” By from Merrily We Roll Along then “Losing My Mind” from Follies—all combined into one American musical theater giants’ mash up!

The show continues in a style Alan calls “a true old-fashioned cabaret, a smorgasbord of genres, styles and tales; laughter, tears and, of course, provocation!” He will cover songs made famous by female musical legends as diverse as Pink, Edith Piaf, Adele, and Marlene Dietrich. Ever wanted to hear Schubert and Peggy Lee together in one song? You will! Cole Porter will make an appearance, as will Scottish treasures Robert Burns and The Proclaimers, and there might even be a Disney Princess medley sung without a drop of irony. The evening will end with Cumming inviting the audience to sing along with him to one of America’s best known and, in his opinion, most maligned anthems!
