Memphis, TN—Liberace! will open July 10 and run until July 26, 2015, in the Next Stage at Theatre Memphis as a Summer Showcase performance. Featuring Gary Beard as the title character, this moving and highly entertaining tribute to the performer and musician famous for his charm, glitz, and glamour relives the highs (and lows) of Liberace’s prolific life revealing the real person behind the persona. Interwoven with a rollicking piano score spanning classical and popular music from Chopin to “Chopsticks,” and Rachmaninoff to Ragtime, this solo-performer production will have the audiences cheering the life of a unique American icon.

This Summer Showcase show is listed as a part of the 2015-2016 season but is not a part of the season membership. However, all season members will receive a discount on adult full price tickets. A preview performance is being held on July 9, 2015, to benefit Theatre Memphis’ artistic endeavors. The price is $100 per person ($50 tax deductible) and the evening will include a cocktail buffet at6:30pm with the performance to follow.
