Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Liberace’s® Birthday on the day of our opening show.

See the costumes, hear the music and experience the joy of an evening of grandeur…and fun!

Martin Preston re-creates the magic of Liberace® in a spectacular full-length show, complete with crystal candelabra, rhinestone-studded grand piano, and the flamboyance and excitement of Las Vegas’ greatest musical showman. An actor and musician who has devoted the last 18 years to recapture the music, comedy, and glamour of the late, great Liberace, the classically trained pianist, astound you with marvelous musical memories – all performed live -of Liberace® favorites like The Beer Barrel Polka, Malaguena, The 12th Street Rag, and I’ll Be Seeing You. Lushly orchestrated and carefully reproduced, the music is from the original signature arrangements.

And the costumes!!! You will witness six spectacular, outrageous, eye-popping creations, all duplicates of actual Liberace® designs. The opening costume [known as the Arctic Emperor] has 250,000 hand-sewn sequins, beads, and crystals, not to mention over ten pounds of Swarovski rhinestones And that’s not all–in addition to five other equally elaborate outfits, Preston also sports fantastic furs, sparkling rings, dazzling jewelry, and a fabulous floor-length feathered cape that shines with 150 electric lights!

“It was one of the most campy, fun times I’ve had in a theatre!”

Dress in your favorite sparkles – there’s no such thing as too much! And join us for birthday cake after the show!
