Alan Cumming, Not Your Next Broadway Star

Fake excommunicated actor Alan Cumming was all set to return the stage (remember Cabaret?) in the Spider-Man musical, the one with U2’s music and called Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, but he has dropped out of his chance to play Green Goblin for charlatans paying $150 for orchestra seats. Something about scheduling conflicts with his new full-time role on CBS’s The Good Wife.

    This is a really irritating way of spinning a story. Alan Cumming dropped out because that musical is in production hell. Evan Rachel Wood did the same thing a month ago. Just because you don’t like Alan Cumming doesn’t mean you need to imply that this is some kind of dumb career move.

    Alan Cumming is hardly ever off the stage, so it hardly would have been a “return”. And besides, the image you used above is of him on stage fairly recently in Edinburgh. Get your facts sorted!
