ALAN CUM­MING

Boston Common - - SOCIETY & CULTURE -

Think of all the in­ten­sity Tony Award-win­ning ac­tor Alan Cum­ming brought to the stage as the sub­ver­sive em­cee in Cabaret or in his riv­et­ing tour-de-force per­for­mance in Mac­beth. Now imag­ine him do­ing that to Mi­ley Cyrus. Cum­ming brings his de­li­cious and un­ex­pect­edly emo­tional cabaret show Alan Cum­ming Sings Sappy Songs to San­ders Theatre Oct. 6 as part of Celebrity Se­ries of Bos­ton. Cum­ming has his Bos­ton bona fides, tap­ing his MAS­TER­PIECE Mys­tery! seg­ments at WGBH, col­lect­ing an hon­orary de­gree from Bos­ton Con­ser­va­tory at Berklee and check­ing out ev­ery­thing from drama to drag (at the Amer­i­can Reper­tory The­ater and Bay Vil­lage main­stay Jac­ques re­spec­tively) when he has the chance. 8pm, sub­scriber tick­ets from $75, 45 Quincy St., Cam­bridge, celebri­ty­series.org
