Club Cumming On The Coast

Club Cumming on the Coast

Join us this summer as award-winning actor, singer, philanthropist, LGBTQ+ advocate and nightclub owner, Alan Cumming brings his East Village cabaret bar, Club Cumming, to the Kennebunkport Inn.

Launching Memorial Day weekend, this seasonal outpost will feature a rotating roster of talent, personally curated by Cumming and his team, who will perform Friday and Saturday evenings on a replica of the East Village venue’s “postage stamp-sized” stage.  Entertainment will range from theater world stars to piano-bar showtunes, drag performances to jazz acts and more.  In addition to bringing world class entertainers to Maine’s storied summer colony, Club Cumming on the Coast has partnered with  The Actors Fund to support the national human service organization’s ongoing effort to support those arts professionals who have been especially impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Since March 18, 2020, The Actors Fund has provided more than $20 million in emergency financial assistance to thousands of individuals across all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

During the month of June, Club Cumming on the Coast will honor Pride Month with a series of special programs, hotel packages and experiences celebrating LGBTQPIA+ visibility.  Highlights include an exclusive partnership with the stylish, New England-based footwear leader Sperry to showcase the brand’s latest Pride Collection featuring design elements inspired by the LGBTQ+ flags.

 

Starting May 28, shows will occur weekly, Friday and Saturday from 6-7:30p. Reservations made during the performances will require a food & beverage minimum of $100 per reservation, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Actors Fund. If you would like to make a reservation for Club Cumming, please select “Outdoor Dining” between 5-6:45pm. Please note: in the case of inclement weather, performances will be moved indoors and reservations will be accommodated.
