Alan Cumming just wrapped up his second long stint playing the Emcee in Cabaret at Broadway’s Studio 54. The Olivier and Tony Award-winning star of the CBS series The Good Wife has barely caught his breath, but he’s heading out on the road with his solo show — and he’s kicking the concert tour off at 8 p.m. April 11 at Fort Lauderdale’s Parker Playhouse.

Performing with his musical director Lance Horne and cellist Eleanor Norton, the Scottish Cumming sings, shares stories and entertains with an edgy mix of comedy and bawdiness. Made an Officer of the British Empire for his eclectic work onstage, in movies and on TV, as well as his efforts on behalf of LGBT rights, the dual British-United States citizen has been active on social media protesting Indiana’s “religious freedom” legislation, so that just might come up at the Parker.

Drag performer Dina Martina will open for Cumming at the Parker, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $43 to $108 at 954-462-0222, www.parkerplayhouse.com, www.browardcenter.org or www.ticketmaster.com.
