Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth (On the Twentieth Century) will join Alan Cumming in his Carnegie Hall debut concert, Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs With Friends, on Monday, February 8. The pair have previously worked together hosting the 2015 Tony Awards.

As previously announced, the show will also feature guest performances by Darren Criss (Glee, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Ricki Lake (Hairspray), as well as a special performance by the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. Backed by Cumming's longtime musical director Lance Horne on piano, Eleanor Norton on cello, Chris Jago on drums, and Michael Croiter on guitar and percussion.

The Carnegie Hall engagement marks the release of Cumming's new CD of Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs, from Yellow Sound Label, recorded live at the Café Carlyle, where the show premiered in 2015. It includes his interpretations of pop hits (Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon," Miley Cyrus's "The Climb," Rufus Wainwright's "Dinner at Eight"), musical theater songs ("The Ladies Who Lunch" from Company, "You, You, You" from Kander & Ebb's The Visit, "If Love Were All" by Noël Coward), and numbers that Cumming has collected from around the world ("Mother Glasgow" from Scotland, "La Complainte de la Butte" from France, "How Do Humans Live" from Germany). The album — produced by Michael Croiter, with Daniel Nardicio serving as associate producer — is currently available for pre-order here.

Following his album launch at Carnegie Hall, Cumming will perform the show in Tampa, Florida (January 24), Toronto (February 6), Bethesda, Maryland (February 14), Naples, Florida (February 28), Detroit (March 19), Minneapolis (March 26), Princeton, NJ (May 13), and Port Washington, NY (May 14).
