Take a break from your barbecue with one of these A&E events.

Alan Cumming

He’s got theater (“Cabaret,”), TV (“The Good Wife”), movies (“X Men 2”) and even kids stuff (yes, he’s the voice of Gutsy Smurf) well covered. Now Alan Cumming takes the cabaret stage in a concert in which he promises to sing “sappy songs.” Previous performances indicate that those titles could include “If Love Were All,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” and a version of Adele’s “Someone Like You.”
