The singing actor will be joined by the previously reported Darren Criss, The New York City Gay Men's Chorus and Ricki Lake. Newly announced for the evening is Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth, replacing Chita Rivera, who has withdrawn due to a recent injury.

Cumming will be backed by Lance Horne, piano; Michael Croiter, guitar and percussion; Chris Jago, drums; and Eleanor Norton, cello.

This evening marks the release of Cumming's newest CD, "Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs," from Yellow Sound Label, recorded live at the Café Carlyle. It includes his interpretations of pop hits (Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon,” Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb,” Rufus Wainwright’s “Dinner at Eight”), musical theatre 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).

The concert is presented by Daniel Nardicio Productions.
