Alan Cumming lead the cast of Broadway's Cabaret through 'Wikommen' to celebrate the return of the hit musical to the Great White Way. The performance, which took place live on The Today Show plaza last Thursday, was originally set to take place in early May as part of the Today show's 'Best of Broadway' series. However, due to the inclement weather in the New York area at the time, the network was forced to postpone the appearance.
