More About Alan Cumming

One need only hear Cumming's narration of his own memoir, Not My Father’s Son, to understand his enrapturing appeal; he won two Audie awards for that title, for Best Autobiography/Memoir and for Narration by Author in addition to it being named one of Audible’s Best Books of the Year in 2014.
The Tony-winning actor has brought all of his formidable skills to Sherlock Holmes, Hans Christian Andersen, and Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan series. An incredibly versatile actor, Cumming has also excelled in narrating children’s books, winning an Audie in 2011 for Zorgamazoo, the quirky, rhyming, rhythmical tale of Katrina and Morty the Zorgle. He’s even tackled Macbeth twice, in a dramatization of the original work Macbeth, and in Macbeth: A Novel, a reimagining (in novel form) of the Bard’s famous drama, written by two veteran mystery authors. The dynamic actor raved about the experience saying, " Macbeth is a great play for a Scottish actor because it’s the one Shakespeare play that should be spoken in a Scottish accent...The language is very guttural. It’s talking about a landscape you understand...I know all the names of all the places."
Cumming continues to stay busy acting, and, having made waves with both of his Broadway runs as the Emcee in Cabaret (in 1998 and 2014), he’s taken it to the next level and opened his own NYC club.
