In conversation with Wesley Stace, author, Wonder Kid

Beloved star of stage and screen and “one of the most fun people in show business” (Time), Alan Cumming is renowned for his fearless portrayal of diverse characters. In the past few years, he has sung at venues around the globe; appeared in a handful of films; voiced a Smurf, a goat, and Hitler; entered upside down and suspended by his ankles in a Greek tragedy; recorded an album; made three documentaries; released a fragrance; and hosted Masterpiece Mystery. He is currently reprising his Tony Award-winning role of the Emcee in Cabaret on Broadway. With bawdy humor and insight, Cumming shares the emotional story of his complicated relationship with his father and the deeply buried family secrets that shaped his life and career.
