It's a challenge to keep track of the comings and goings of Alan Cumming.

Culture Monster recently reported that the busy Scottish actor would bring the West Coast premiere of his one-man cabaret show "Alan Cumming: I Bought a Blue Car Today" to the Orange County Performing Arts Center with two performances on Sept. 26.  And today, Geffen Playhouse is announcing that Cumming will be driving his "Blue Car" from Orange County to the Geffen's 135-seat Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater for eight performances Sept. 29-Oct. 4.

Cumming's show, which blends his personal stories with live music including material form Frank Sinatra, Kander & Ebb and others, comes to both OCPAC and the Geffen following runs at Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center and the Vaudeville Theater on London's West End.

As part of the his worldwide web of performances (and also previously reported on Culture Monster), Cumming was recently confirmed to star with Evan Rachel Wood in the upcoming Broadway musical "Spider Man," directed by Julie Taymor.
