About the Event

Alan Cumming has done it all. He has won a Tony®, hosted the Tonys, and been nominated for an Emmy® for doing so. He made back-to-back films with Stanley Kubrick and the Spice Girls. He has played God, the devil, Hitler, the pope, Hamlet, all the parts in Macbeth, Dionysus, a Smurf (twice) and the EmCee in Cabaret (thrice). And now he’s coming to Scottsdale. 

Alan’s activism and passion for various civil rights, sex education, and social justice causes has earned him more than 40 awards. He has also received three honorary doctorates and both the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards from his homeland. He was made an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) for his contributions to the arts and LBGT equality by Queen Elizabeth II, whose portrait was taken down when his was unveiled at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 2014. 

He has sung in concert halls across the globe, including the Sydney Opera House, the London Palladium, the Hollywood Bowl, and Carnegie Hall. Billboard said “he’s an icon to behold — he is unapologetically himself, and with a talent like that, he has no need to apologize.” Time magazine called him “one of the three most fun people in show business.” The New York Times described him as a “bawdy counter-cultural sprit.” And The Guardian called him “European, weird, and sexually ambiguous,” and he isn’t nearly done yet.
