Kelly and Michael: Alan Cumming Alcoholic Panda

Tony Award winner and fabulous entertainer Alan Cumming was escorted onstage by two of the swimsuit models for the End Winter Now men’s fashion show. He visited Kelly & Michael to promote his return to Broadway’s Cabaret and The Good Wife.

Strahan just saw Cumming in the Kenneth Cole fashion show. He and Rachel Dratch appeared in a video at the start of the show, and they walked the runway at the end of the show. He and the actress felt like they were surrounded by the models. He wore some “guy-liner” and put his hair back for the runway performance.

Cumming said he went home after the night and slept with his makeup on, so he woke up looking like “an alcoholic panda.” Kelly Ripa agreed that the morning after that type of party is always a rude awakening.

Cumming is reprising his role as the emcee in Cabaret, for which he won a Tony. “It’s good to be back,” he said. “I feel like I fell asleep 15 years ago and I’ve woken up and all the cast are different except me.”

He went to the Lincoln Center Library to watch his 1998 performance and brush up in advance of this. He told Kelly & Michael it was interesting to see the full production, which you don’t typically get to do when you are in a play or musical. Kelly said this is a must-see performance.
