2010s

Ultimate Encore

I wrote and directed this short film for the W Hotel Times Square in support of the animal adoption charity Broadway Barks.  My friend and long time collaborator Ned Stresen-Reuter shot and edited it,  and it was premiered at a party at the W Times Square on December 8th.  It marked the movie debut of my dog Jerry, and the final appearance of our dear departed Leon.

 

Book Festivals

I attended a few writers festivals to talk about Not My Father's Son, in Palm Beach, Auckland and Sydney. Then I also did an event at Arcadia University in Pennsylvania, where my book was chosen as required reading for every first year student and faculty member.

In Concert 2015

I am performing a lot of concerts this year. I have already played Ft Lauderdale, New Orleans, San Francisco, Buck's County, Carnegie Hall with the NY Pops, a two week run of my new show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs at the Cafe Carlyle, Saratoga, the Ravinia festival in Chicago.

Remember That Time

I shot a series of short interviews about iconic moments in people’s lives entitled, “Remember That Time.” We shot them at Sardi’s, the legendary theater restaurant in New York City, and they were first broadcast on CBS All Access. 

Strange Magic

I played the Bog King in this animated film from the George Lucas company. I had been attached to the film for years through many changes both in front of and behind the camera. I especially loved working with Marius de Vries the music supervisor, who coached and carried me through some amazing songs over the years!
