Alan Cumming and Ari Shapiro

Och & Oy! A Considered Cabaret
Symphony Hall

At long last, we are excited to bring you the highly anticipated Boston debut of Och & Oy! A Considered Cabaret, created and performed by two audience favorites from very different parts of the entertainment world. Originally planned for 2020, this wildly entertaining cabaret-style show brings together Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming and NPR’s All Things Considered host (and Pink Martini guest vocalist) Ari Shapiro. It’s not the most obvious pairing, but they’re both singular storytellers with big personalities, and this evening of tunes and tall tales will quickly prove that unlikely collaborations can yield some of the most memorable and meaningful results. Come prepared to laugh, think, and revel in the unexpected with this “ever-changing” show.

“I realized our chemistry and the unusual combo of us, as well as the fact that Ari has an amazing voice, would make for a really great cabaret show.”

Alan Cumming

“… as we started to dig in to this collaboration, I realized … we’re both storytellers who try to help audiences better understand themselves and the world around them.”
