Tickets are available now by calling 866-663-1063 or visiting www.ticketfly.com.Legal Immigrant, a collection of musings on Alan's 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 theatre 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!Alan Cumming is an actor and activist beyond eclectic and according to The New York Times "a bawdy countercultural sprite"; Time Magazine named him one of the most fun people in show business; He plays political maverick Eli Gold on CBS's "The Good Wife," for which he received Golden Globe, Emmy, SAG and Satellite Award nominations and earlier this year finished his Tony Award-winning role of the Emcee in the Broadway musical Cabaret.
