Share

NOTE: Tickets for this event include a copy of Alan Cumming's new book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams. Additional copies of the book may be purchased onsite.

He enthralls audiences with his colorful roles, but Alan Cumming’s real-life adventures pack just as much punch. LIVE kicks off its season with Paul Holdengräber and the award-winning actor in a conversation as whimsical and mischievous as Cumming’s new book of photographs and essays, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures



ALAN CUMMING is an award-winning actor, artist, writer, activist, photographer, and raconteur. He has won an Olivier award for his work on the London stage, and a Tony for his work on Broadway; he appeared in all seven seasons of CBS’ The Good Wife for which he received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. He is currently touring a cabaret show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs and recently released an album of the same name. He is the author of novel Tommy’s Tale and the #1 New York Times best-selling memoir Not My Father’s Son.
