Actor Alan Cumming (The Good Wife, X-Men 2) appears at Sixth & I on Monday, September 26, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

In You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams, the light-hearted follow-up to his acclaimed Not My Father’s Son, Alan Cumming, a Tony and Olivier Award-winning actor, novelist, and activist, combines personal stories with his own photos to create a scrapbook of highlights from the off-stage portions of his life in show business. Told with wit and panache, these funny, insightful, and often self-deprecating tales of Cummings misadventures feature stars including Helen Mirren, Carrie Fisher, Oprah, and more.

This event will not include a public signing; all books will be pre-signed by Cumming.

Alan Cumming is an award-winning actor, artist, writer, activist, photographer, and raconteur. He has won an Olivier award for his work on the London stage, and a Tony for his work on Broadway; he appeared in all seven seasons of The Good Wife on CBS for which he received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. He is currently touring a cabaret show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs and recently released an album of the same name. He is the author of novel Tommy’s Tale and the New York Times best-selling memoir Not My Father’s Son. He last appeared at Live Talks Los Angeles to mark the publication Not My Father’s Son.

Put David Sedaris and Glenn O’Brien in a blender and add a dash of New York and Hollywood gossip, and you wind up with Alan Cumming. In “You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: And Other Stories,” Alan Cumming takes the reader on a wild journey of pithy and cheeky fun, presenting his real-life stories of debauchery during late night Hollywood parties, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and hilarious yet poignant memories of his life, family, and friends.

In this new book, he recounts hysterical and sometimes embarrassing encounters, from awkwardly entertaining Elizabeth Taylor at Carrie Fisher’s birthday party to being on a movie set with Helen Mirren and being mocked for wearing Croc sandals to making a friend’s day by chasing down Oprah at a glitzy gala for a prized photograph with her. These forty-five stories are humorous novellas, each featuring memorable photographs—many simply snapshots taken by Cumming—that document or illustrate the tale told.

Ticket sales are final. No refunds.
