“I Am Not a Cheese; I Do Not Have a Process.” Alan Cumming on Acting

Share

June 23, 2014

Program Locations:

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Bruno Walter Auditorium

Alan Cumming

Charming, thoughtful, and immutably good humored Tony award winning actor Alan Cumming hates talking about acting, but that is exactly what the Library for the Performing Arts has asked him to do. Having transformed himself into such varied characters as the Emcee in Cabaret, Dionysus in The Bacchae, Mac the Knife in Three Penny Opera, plus every role in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Cumming has learned with each new production. Through the display of personal photos, rehearsal notes, and other materials, Cumming will share the stories behind his most celebrated performances, providing rare insight into the craft of a master artist.
