CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

Alan Cumming archiveOne of Scotland's best-loved artists, the incomparable Alan Cumming takes up residence in The Hub for the month of August, where he dispenses seductive songs and intimate stories (almost) nightly. Alan transforms the International Festival HQ for a hedonistic late-night cabaret mix of ballads and torch songs old and new, from the intimate to the sassy. Expect intimate secrets and raucous anecdotes - all delivered with disarming emotional honesty. Gorgeously filthy and brazenly flirty, he offers his own, very personal reinterpretations of the songs he loves to perform - by Kurt Weill and No?l Coward, Stephen Sondheim and Rufus Wainwright, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Inspired by his infamous post-show dressing room parties during his Broadway run in Cabaret, Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs! premiered at New York's legendary Cafe Carlyle and recently sold out Carnegie Hall. Actor, writer and activist Alan Cumming is a Tony and Olivier Award-winner and a multiple Golden Globe - and Emmy - nominated worldwide sensation, known for his work in TV (The Good Wife), film (X2, Eyes Wide Shut) and theatre (Macbeth, Cabaret). He is the author of the best-selling memoir Not My Father's Son, and starred as a golden kilt-wearing Dionysus in the National Theatre of Scotland's notorious and spectacular The Bacchae at the 2007 International Festival. He is joined by his long-time collaborator and Emmy-winning musical director Lance Horne and Eleanor Norton on cello. Alan Cumming website.
