Alan Cumming Chats with Conan O'Brien, January 6
Alan Cumming, future star of Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of The Threepenny Opera will be featured on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on Friday, January 6th at 12:35 1:35 AM (Late Night).
Roundabout Theatre Company will present Tony Award-winning Alan Cumming (Macheath), Tony and Grammy Award-winning Jim Dale (Mr. Peachum), Grammy and Emmy Award-winning Cyndi Lauper (Jenny), Ana Gasteyer (Mrs. Peachum) and Nellie McKay as (Polly) in a new Broadway production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera, directed by Scott Elliott on Broadway at Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street).
"The Threepenny Opera serves up a deliciously dark satire of 'respectable' society, with dashing thieves, saucy prostitutes, and lingering melodies. Based on Elizabeth Hauptmann's German translation of John Gay's eighteenth-century The Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera thrusts the audience into the seedy underworld of Mack the Knife, a dapper criminal and his wry love affair with Polly Peachum," according to press notes.
Cumming received a Tony Award for his performance as the Emcee in the 1998 revival of Cabaret, and was also seen on Broadway in Design for Living. Other film credits include the Spy Kids films, X2, Nicholas Nickleby, Titus, Eyes Wide Shut, Emma, Circle of Friends and Disney's TV musical adaptation of Annie.
Beginning January 15th, tickets will be available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Studio 54 Box Office (254 West 54th St.). The Threepenny Opera will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM. Tickets are $36.25 - $111.25.
