MCMULLEN MUSEUM OF ART ATRIUM PHOTO BY GARY WAYNE GILBERT, BOSTON COLLEGE S O C I E T Y & C U L T U R E r o u n d u p ink of all the intensity Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming brought to the stage as the subversive emcee in Cabaret or in his riveting tour-de-force performance in Macbeth. Now imagine him doing that to Miley Cyrus. Cumming brings his delicious and unexpectedly emotional cabaret show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs to Sanders eatre Oct. 6 as part of Celebrity Series of Boston. Cumming has his Boston bona fides, taping his MASTERPIECE Mystery! segments at WGBH, collecting an honorary degree from Boston Conservatory at Berklee and checking out everything from drama to drag (at the American Repertory eater and Bay Village mainstay Jacques respectively) when he has the chance. 8 pm, subscriber tickets from $75, 45 Quincy St., Cambridge, Boston College's McMullen Museum of Art moved into its new digs, a gorgeous Neo-Renaissance palazzo overlooking downtown Boston, last year. e former residence of the Archbishop of Boston, has been extensively renovated and restored and the building now only portends promise. Especially when Elizabeth ompson Goizueta is in the mix. After knockout retrospectives of Cuban artists Wifredo Lam and Rafael Soriano, the fiercely smart curator sets her sights on Spanish-Argentinian painter Esteban Lisa in the exhibition e Abstract Cabinet opening Sept. 16. It'll make you swoon, and die to collect. Free, 2101 Commonwealth Ave., Oh the stories Andy Warhol and Truman Capote could tell. It turns out they did—together. e famous friends recorded hundreds of hours of conversations in the late 1970s in the hopes of creating a Broadway play that never happened. But Warhol Capote, premiering at the American Repertory eater Sept. 9, mines those conversations for a new work offering up the pair's intimate musings on celebrities, Studio 54 scandals and more. e never-before-heard meetings yield "riveting conversation," says Diane Paulus, the A.R.T.'s Artistic Director. "[It's] at times hilarious, deeply emotional, and often jaw dropping." Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) directs. Lookout, Broadway.
