first_img Cabaret Alan Cumming Show Closed This production ended its run on March 29, 2015 Related Shows Life is a Cabaret, old chum! Alan Cumming, reprising his Tony Award-winning role as the Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall revival, tweeted this selfie March 21 just before his first performance in the production at Studio 54. The Scot has been brutally honest about the changes he’s undergone in the last 16 years since he played the part, even tweeting about how he’s now a man who dyes his hair and talking about how he’s now an “ancient old hag” in interviews. Well, we can’t wait to see you at Studio 54, Mr. Cumming, you’ll always be young in our eyes. We do have a favor to ask, though: how about tweeting a hot shot of your co-star Michelle Williams? We really want to know what she looks like as Sally Bowles!
