> Alan Cumming in USA Today, 9/3/14

Alan Cumming is currently starring as the Master of Ceremonies opposite Michelle Williams in Cabaret on Broadway, a performance which won him a Tony Award 1998. He recently completed the Broadway run of the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of Macbeth. He recently wrapped season 5 of the CBS hit drama The Good Wife for which he has been nominated for multiple Emmy, SAG, Critics’ Choice and Satellite awards. He also stars as Austen Clarke opposite Lisa Kudrow in Showtime’s Web Therapy and is the host of Masterpiece Mystery on PBS.

He continues to be an activist for gay rights and education and has received many awards for his work including most recently honors from Bailey House, the Matthew Shephard Foundation, The LGBT Task Force, The Trevor Project and AmFAR . He was awarded an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) for his work in the arts and LGBT rights by the Queen in 2009 and has also received both the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards.

A beloved star of stage, television, and film, Alan Cumming is a successful artist whose diversity and fearlessness is unparalleled. His success masks a painful childhood growing up under the heavy rule of an emotionally and physically abusive father—a relationship that tormented him long into adulthood. In his memoir, Not My Father’s Son, he shares the emotional story of his complicated relationship with his father and the deeply buried family secrets that shaped his life and career.

When television producers in the UK approached him to appear on a popular celebrity genealogy show in 2010, Alan enthusiastically agreed. He hoped the show would solve a family mystery involving his maternal grandfather, a celebrated WWII hero who disappeared in the Far East. But as the truth of his family ancestors revealed itself, Alan learned far more than he bargained for about himself, his past, and his own father.
