This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

We’re thrilled to welcome Alan Cumming to the INFORUM stage for the very first time!

Alan Cumming has made movies with everyone from Stanley Kubrick to the Spice Girls. He’s mastered Snapchat. He was named an Officer of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth. You may recognize him as wily Eli Gold from the CBS drama "The Good Wife," or from his Tony-winning turn in Cabaret on Broadway. He’s played roles including the devil, the pope and God—we can’t wait to see what he manages to pull off next. Stage, silver screen, books, behind the camera: Alan Cumming can do it all.

When he’s not onstage, in front of the camera or writing away, Alan’s a vocal advocate for causes, including LGBT rights and AIDS charities. He has received both the Vito Russo Award at the Annual GLAAD Media Awards and Human Rights Campaign’s Humanitarian Award in recognition of his many efforts.

Alan’s latest book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams, shows off many of his personal photographs and shares insider stories from his long, shiny career in show business as well as his fascinating life away from the limelight. So put on your Broadway best and join us at the Castro Theatre for a fun-filled evening with this quirky, talented and charming quadruple threat.
