Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures says
Alan Cumming in conversation with Tracy Brigden, Artistic Director of City Theatre

Described by Time magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, Alan Cumming is a genuine triple-threat as a successful stage, television, and film star whose roles and performances reflect his authentic exuberance, sophisticated wit, and winsome-yet-devilish charm. He has won an Olivier award for his work on the London stage, and a Tony for his work on Broadway; and has appeared in all seven seasons of CBS’ The Good Wife for which he received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. Already a #1 New York Times best-selling author (Not My Father’s Son), he is back with new book You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams.

In this new collection, the actor, singer, writer, and man-about-town shares wildly entertaining real-life stories of louche late-night parties, backstage anecdotes, life in LA and New York, Travels With Charley-like cross-country road trips with his beloved dog, Honey, and poignant memories of his life, loves, family, fellow actors, and friends.

This volume relates encounters that only Cumming could experience, from awkwardly entertaining Elizabeth Taylor at Carrie Fisher’s birthday party, to discussing love and sex with Gore Vidal, to making a friend’s dream come true by snapping a photo of him with Oprah—a story that also reveals the bracing source of the book’s provocative title!

Illustrated by Cumming’s own memorable photographs, these forty-five charming, naughty, thoughtful, and wickedly hilarious stories will leave the reader feeling like a lucky member of Alan Cumming’s inner circle.

Cumming is currently touring a cabaret show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs and recently released an album of the same name. In addition to his New & Noted book event, he will be performing at the Byham Theater in Pittsburgh on Friday, October 14 at 8:00 pm. For more information, check out The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s website.

Cumming’s books will be available for sale from our local bookseller Classic Lines.
