Looking through the upcoming concerts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you might think that an Evening with Alan Cumming on November 14, at Borgata’s Music Box might make for a peaceful, pleasant evening with the Broadway star.
Especially if we tell you that Cumming himself bills the evening as “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.”
Doesn’t that sound like a peaceful event?
Only if you’re not familiar with Alan Cumming—at least on stage. Since he sprang on the scene playing the master of ceremonies in the 1998 Broadway re-adaption of “Cabaret,” Cumming has been one of the most energetic and unpredictable stage presences in American theater.
Sappy songs huh? Here’s a description of the show from the NY Times review.
“Nothing, however, prepared me for the emotional firestorm that Mr. Cumming detonated at Tuesday’s opening-night performance of his nightclub show ‘Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.’ ‘Have a hankie ready,’ he advised early in the evening while flashing a subversive Mephistophelean grin whose message read: You know and I know that underneath our decorum, we’re all ravenous sexual beasts and hooray for that!”
That’s Alan Cumming, one of the hardest actors/singers to pin down into a neat stereotypical role. The Scottish born performer has been seen on American film screens (starting in 1997 with “Romy and Michelle’s Wedding“) and TV screens in a host of roles from “Spy Kids” to his current role on “The Good Wife.”
These days, EDM rules in the clubs–such as Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s mur.mur—but that doesn’t mean there’s not some room for a little diversity. EDM comes with its own genres including progressive house, electro house and trance. So it’s nice when a DJ comes along who is a veteran master of spinning all of…
Of all Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s resident DJs, few get as much discussion as Samantha Ronson, who returns to spin at mur.mur November 7. There’s her famous family, with her stepdad, Foreigner guitarist, Mick Jones, her brother and fellow musician Mark Ronson and her twin sister and fashion designer Charlotte Ronson. Though one of…
Fall is a season of change, and here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we want to put a little more change in your pocket. OK, that was awful. Bad puns aside, we do know here at Borgata that everyone could use two things—a bargain and a break from the day-to-day stress every once in…
The Borgata Event Center has been the site of some truly amazing concerts through the years attracting some of the biggest names in show business. Despite that, even we here at Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa can get a little star struck when Hall of Famers take the stage. And by Hall of Famers, we…
When the calendar turns over to November each year, a lot of people start thinking about things like wind chills and the coming winter snows. Here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we start thinking about something completely different—like Monkfish Francaise at Fornelletto or Crab Cake Sliders at Old Homestead Steakhouse. And that’s just for…
Sometimes when you’re researching a band like The Roots—say for a certain casino blog—you can get a little overwhelmed by some of the things a simple “Tonight Show” house band can get in to. The band’s partnership with Jimmy Fallon, first on “Late Night” and then on “The Tonight Show” would seem to have been…
When stand-up comic Brian Regan returns to Borgata’s Event Center October 10, he’ll be fresh off making history with the first live comedy broadcast in Comedy Central’s history.
“Brian Regan: The Epitome of Hyperbole” live from Radio City Music Hall aired September 26, and set a new standard for the comedy channel.
With all the taped specials they’ve done with comics over the years, there’s never really been a live broadcast. Regan said he pitched the idea to Comedy Central, but admits there were some risks involved.
“With a live broadcast, obviously, there’s no safety net,” he told splitsider.com before the show. “If you hit the stage and the crowd’s not good, well, that’s what’s happening. That’s what’s going out. That’s part of what I am excited about: that it’s an unknown. Every time I do standup, it’s live. Every time I do a show in front of an audience, that’s live.”
Though for Regan, a veteran of more than 35 years in standup, you do have to wonder how much risk there really was. Regan’s funny, plain and simple, and he has been for a long time.
Like many comics, Regan is known for observational humor. But in his case, it’s very relatable and clean observations.
