TPAC presents: Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs

TENNESSEE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

MAY 31, 7:30pm

Alan Cumming has won over thirty awards for his humanitarianism and social activism, received both the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards from his homeland and was made an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) for his contributions to the arts and LBGT equality by the Queen, whose portrait was taken down when his was unveiled at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 2014!

Alan Cumming is many things to many people – renaissance man, style icon, social activist, bon viveur - but to himself he is a story-teller and provocateur for hire.

Love is no ordinary emotion, and Alan Cumming is no ordinary performer.

Cumming's musical director and longtime collaborator Lance Horne and special guests will also be on hand for this bawdy tribute to St. Valentine.

The Animals: Love Letters Between Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy

THE MET FIFTH AVENUE

February 13, 7:00pm

Step into the private world of celebrated novelist and screenwriter Christopher Isherwood and artist Don Bachardy—with help from a woman who couldn't resist reading their mail. Acclaimed stage and screen actors Simon Callow and Alan Cumming, together with writer and scholar Katherine Bucknell, enliven the emotional correspondence of the two men, who shared their love through letters while daring to be openly gay in conservative mid-century Hollywood. David Hockney's 1968 portrait of the pair—which Callow and Cumming recreate—provides the inspiration for this loving tribute to two extraordinary men.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition David Hockney, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue November 27, 2017–February 25, 2018.

San Fransisco's Frameline Festival

CLOSING NIGHT FILM AND PARTY: AFTER LOUIE

Sunday, June 25th at 7:00pm

Castro Theatre
429 Castro St

San Francisco, CA 94114

"The community is dead, literally...as well as figuratively," quips a curmudgeonly Sam (Alan Cumming) in After Louie. Still mourning the loss of his lover to AIDS two decades prior, Sam channels his ennui into rent boys, cigarettes, and an experimental video project that seems indefinitely stuck on pause. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden (Zachary Booth, Keep the Lights On) at a bar late one night, their pants quickly come down and, eventually, so does Sam's ossified guard. As the pair become increasingly intimate, an intergenerational relationship blossoms between them - one capable of reawakening Sam's artistic soul and reviving his wilted heart.

Established in 1986, the Frameline Award is given every year to a person or entity that has made a major contribution to LGBTQ representation in film, television, or the media arts.  This year, Frameline's Board and Staff are proud to present the Frameline Award to Alan Cumming.
