LIBERACE

February 7, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15.00 - $25

Jon Mark Hurley, member of Actors’ Equity teams with Susan Stuart, Cabrillo College Theatre Arts, and artistic director at Our Public Theatre to present a one-man extravaganza based on the brilliant career of Wladziu Valentino Liberace, otherwise known as LIBERACE. Written by Brent Hazelton and produced in cooperation with the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre gave its premiere in Liberace’s home town, in the 2010-11 season to great acclaim. This funny yet tender journey spans years of fame and great fortune with times of travail and heartbreak as a child virtuoso becomes an international star. Amid more than thirty musical compositions, the sly humor of this ground-breaking entertainer shines through as he becomes “Mr. Showmanship”.

“Audiences were delighted to discover that this one-man show ….is more than a musical revue: it’s a full scale biography performed in piano and song of…one of the most famously flamboyant entertainers of our time. A non-stop marathon of witty anecdotes and scintillating piano arrangements….poignant and compelling.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“…empathetic and insightful…full of humor and melodious harmony…LIBERACE dazzles the eyes and ears.” –Third Coast Digest

“…no punches are pulled, no details sparred…yet this remains a joyous show.” –Shepard Express
