I recorded Annie Lennox's Why in a studio in NYC and it was projected at the Sydney Opera House for the Love Me show last Sunday and I was accompanied by Lance Horne and band with the lovely Courtney Act doing harmonies! Crazy!

My friend, photographer Frederic Aranda, took some pictures of me outside the ReRun cinema in Dumbo, Brooklyn, just before I went to see the movie I was in, Almost In Love, which was playing there. Here's a wee vid of us capering in the garbage. And then the trailer for Almost in Love
Here's a short film i've made with fashion designer Julian Zigerli and writer/director Martin Monk!
I am taking my Macbeth to Broadway!
Direct from acclaimed, sold-out engagements at the National Theatre of Scotland and the Lincoln Center Festival, Tony and Olivier Award winner ("Cabaret") and two-time Emmy nominee ("The Good Wife") Alan Cumming returns to Broadway this spring in a thrilling one-man interpretation of Shakespeare's darkest and most powerful tragedy, MACBETH.
Produced by Ken Davenport, MACBETH will play a strictly limited 73-performance engagement at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street).
Preview performances begin on Sunday, April 7 (7 p.m.) with an official Opening Night on Sunday, April 21 (6 p.m.). The Broadway engagement will conclude on Sunday, June 30.
Tickets are on sale now. Visit Telecharge.com or call 212-239-6200.
A tour-de-force performance directed by Tony Award winner John Tiffany ("Once") and Andrew Goldberg ("The Bomb-itty of Errors"), the National Theatre of Scotland's MACBETH is set in a clinical room deep within a dark psychiatric unit. Cumming is the lone patient, reliving the infamous story and inhabiting each role himself.
Closed circuit television cameras watch the patient's eve
ry move as the walls of the psychiatric ward come to life in a visually stunning multi-media theatrical experience of Shakespeare's notorious tale of desire, ambition and the supernatural.
"Performing MACBETH last year was the most challenging and fulfilling experience of my career by far, and so I am both honoured and daunted to do it again in my adopted hometown of New York City," said Alan Cumming. "I'm also proud of the fact that the National Theatre of Scotland is directly funded by the Scottish government and I cannot think of a better way to trumpet Scotland and its commitment to the arts than being a Scotsman doing his National Theatre's production of the Scottish play on the Great White Way."
I am going to be crooning with Ms Liza Minnelli on March 13th at Town Hall in New York City. You can buy tickets here
