Alan Cumming to have a Fruity New Year in Lismore

INTERNATIONAL master of stage and screen, Alan Cumming is coming to Lismore.

The Scottish actor will take to the NORPA stage at Lismore City Hall on December 29 and 30 as part of the Tropical Fruits Festival.

Alan Cumming: Sings Sappy Songs will bring down the house with eclectic, wildly entertaining and intimate stories and witty reinterpretations of pop songs and stage classics.

Alan Cumming, is an Olivier and Tony Award-winning actor-singer-author, is a versatile performer who won many accolades for his turn as the Emcee on Broadway's Cabaret directed by Sam Mendes and famously held post-show parties in his dressing room that became so renowned they even garnered an alcohol sponsor.

He was named one of the most fun people in show business by Time Magazine and the multi-award-winning actor, singer and author has garnered a legion of fans through an impressive career, including his acclaimed turn as Eli Gold on CBS's The Good Wife, and his work as a columnist and author of the NY Times Best Selling memoir, Not My Father's Son.

Direct from a sold out residency at the legendary Carlyle Hotel in New York, Lismore is his only regional stop on the Australian tour that will visit Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

"We are incredibly thrilled to bring Alan Cumming, direct from New York City to the NORPA stage in collaboration with the Tropical Fruits Festival! It's a coup to have an artist of such international acclaim come to celebrate New Year's Eve with us in Lismore" said Julian Louis, NORPA's Artistic Director.

The production will be one of the highlights of the Tropical Fruits Festival.

The festival opens on December 29 with a parade through Lismore.

The parade will finish up at Lismore City Hall where there will be a free community party from 5:30pm to 7pm, immediately prior to Mr Cummings' first performance.
