The special gives PBS audiences a front row seat at “Club Cumming,” the cabaret setting for the star’s personal and intimate performance that has been likened to “an emotional firestorm.”  In it, Cumming performs songs that mark poignant moments in his life that were originally written or made famous by artists like Annie Lennox (“Why”), Rufus Wainwright (“Dinner at Eight”), Keane (“Somewhere Only We Know”), Billy Joel (“Goodnight Saigon”), a medley of hits by Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry titled “Someone like the Edge of Firework” and more.
