'Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs' at Town Hall Saturday, July 2

Producer Daniel Nardicio will present the eclectic and electric Tony Award-winning performer Alan Cumming at Seattle's Town Hall on Saturday, July 2nd at 8pm.

Cumming's current national concert tour celebrates his acclaimed new album Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs from Yellow Sound Label. When Cumming performed this show at the album launch event at Carnegie Hall in February, Billboard called the evening 'absolutely enchanting. The androgynous imp is both quiet and uproarious, adorable and sensual, flippant and emotional, otherworldly and inviting.'

Cumming is backed by his longtime musical director Lance Horne on piano, Eleanor Norton on cello, and Chris Jago on drums.

'Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs' premiered in Spring 2015 for a limited run at the iconic supper club Café Carlyle, where it was recorded live. The recording includes his singular interpretations of pop hits (Billy Joel's 'Goodnight Saigon,' Miley Cyrus's 'The Climb,' Rufus Wainwright's 'Dinner at Eight'), musical theater songs ('The Ladies Who Lunch' from Company, 'You, You, You' from Kander & Ebb's The Visit, 'If Love Were All' by Noël Coward) and numbers that Cumming has collected from around the world ('Mother Glasgow' from Scotland, 'La Complainte de la Butte' from France, 'How Do Humans Live' from Germany). 'Sappy Songs' was hailed as 'an emotional firestorm, delivered passionately with tremendous theatrical authority' by The New York Times. Alan was lauded for his 'wit, whimsy and powerful voice' by People.com, called 'wonderfully dreamy' by the New York Post with songs that 'ripple with emotion,' according to the New York Daily News. Time Out New York praised Cumming for 'putting a completely fresh interpretive spin on familiar songs.' The album is produced by Michael Croiter and Lance Horne, with Daniel Nardicio serving as associate producer.

More details, including his schedule of performances around the US and U.K. are at AlanCumming.com

'Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs' will take place at Town Hall in Seattle on Saturday, July 2nd at 8pm. The venue is located at 1119 8th Ave., Seattle, WA. Tickets range from $55 to $100. Tickets are available at www.AlanCummingSingsSappySongs.com.



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. Alan's diverse career has found him performing at venues around the globe including the Sydney Opera House; making back to back films with Stanley Kubrick and The Spice Girls; directing and starring in a musical condom commercial; creating voices of a Smurf, a goat and Hitler; entering upside down and suspended by his ankles in a Greek tragedy (in the National Theatre of Scotland's The Bacchae); and recording an award-winning album of songs (plus a dance remix). Alan is also host of PBS's 'Masterpiece Mystery' and appears opposite Lisa Kudrow in Showtime's 'Web Therapy.' Alan has written for The New York Times, Newsweek, Harper's Bazaar, Out, has a bimonthly column for Globe and Mail, and two books; Tommy's Tale and his New York Times bestselling memoir, Not My Father's Son. A tireless champion for LGBT civil rights and HIV/AIDS, Alan serves on the Board of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and works closely with amfAR, The Trevor Project and the Ali Forney Center to name but a few. In 2009, Alan was made an OBE in the Queen's Honors List and by his homeland, Scotland, for which he was a vocal supporter of the YES for independence campaign, he has been awarded the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards, as well as recently having his portrait unveiled at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery as seen on the finale of Portrait Artist of the Year.

DANIEL NARDICIO segued into concerts in 2012 after 15 years in nightlife. He has had the incredible fortune of working with John Waters, Chita Rivera, Margaret Cho, Liza Minnelli, Alan Cumming, Lynda Carter, Peaches, Bridget Everett, Carol Channing, Lady Gaga, Vivian Reed, Christine Ebersole and Billy Stritch. He was beyond thrilled to be presenting Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs at Carnegie Hall.
