Club Cumming Heads to Maine for the Summer

Club Cumming, the popular East Village lounge founded by the legendary Alan Cumming himself, will be opening “Club Cumming on the Coast” in Kennebunkport, Maine this summer. The seaside village is home to intimate resorts, stunning ocean views, and endless acres of New England charm.

This summer though, Club Cumming will be turning the town into a red hot piano bar and cabaret. The Manhattan lounge is famous for its Broadway singers, jazz bands, drag performances, burlesque shows, and more. Now, the troupe will bring all that excitement to the Maine Coast.

Anchored at the Kennebunkport Inn, the show will reside in Maine for a whopping 15 weeks that began on Memorial Day weekend. The show’s run will include performers like Alexis Michelle, from RuPaul’s Drag Race; Broadway star, Natalie Joy Johnson, from Kinky Boots; John Riddle, who plays Raoul in Broadway’s The Phantom of the Opera; and many more. Cumming himself is even expected to make a few surprise visits throughout the summer.

Even better, a portion of proceeds from the shows will go towards the Actors Fund. As everyone knows, the COVID-19 pandemic was absolutely devastating to the entertainment industry, especially for those who perform live entertainment. The Actors Fund is dedicated to helping live performers find stability and resiliency throughout their careers in an industry that’s notorious for being highly unpredictable.

According to Alan Cumming, “Club Cumming is a place for all ages, all colors, all genders, all sexualities—everyone is welcome. Wherever Club Cumming is, we want it to be a place where people feel safe and comfortable, where they’ll see things they might not expect to see, have their horizons broadened, and make new friends. All the performers are very skilled and polished, but if you go through the Club Cumming filter, you’re not run-of-the-mill—you’ve got spunk and feistiness.  I think it’s great if Club Cumming brings a little spice and mischief to Kennebunkport!”
