1. Currently, He’s Reprising His Role in “Cabaret”

In 1998, Alan Cumming dazzled in the musical “Cabaret.” The show has returned to NYC at Studio 54 and Cumming has reprised his epic role, better than ever.

Variety writes:

Alan Cumming must have sold his soul to the devil to acquire his divinely debauched persona as the Emcee of the Kit Kat Klub in “Cabaret.” It seemed nuts but proved shrewd of Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall to retool their dazzling 1998 revival of the Kander and Ebb masterpiece, fit Cumming with a new trenchcoat for his triumphant return, and bring the decadent netherworld of 1920s Berlin back to Studio 54, the revival’s ideal venue.
