"Alan's talent knows no boundaries," said Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, in an earlier statement. "He is a brilliant, unique and off-beat actor and entertainer. His creative energies cannot be confined in any one category or box. Whether on stage or in film, his ornery versatility and sly humor make him an electric and endearing presence, sure to please and, at the same time, startle his audience. We are delighted that he will be joining us in New Hope for another edition of Bucks County Cabaret. It will be superb evening for a community that, since the earliest days of the crisis, has offered consistent and compassionate support for those affected by HIV/AIDS."
The evening begins with cocktails at 5 PM, followed by a 6 PM performance and live auction. An exclusive VIP reception with Cumming will be held after the performance. Lance Horne serves as the evening's music director and accompanies Cumming on piano, with Eleanor Norton on cello.
The evening is sold out, but if tickets become available, they will be offered for sale at will call at the Bucks County Playhouse beginning at 4:30 PM. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis; cash or credit card will be accepted.
Last year's sold-out Bucks County Cabaret featured Bebe Neuwirth and Malcolm Gets and raised $162,100 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
