Speaker: Liberace and Liza Minnelli

A theatrical playground that dares to team up the musical and comedic genius of Liberace & Liza Minnelli

The show? Pure Liberace. The experience? The sorest your cheekbones have ever been. David Saffert hosts as "Mr. Showmanship," bringing to life that incomparable music and stage presence which made audiences swoon for decades. David interacts with the audience just as the master did, whether it's showing off his glamorous costumes, telling flashy tales about the rings, or giving that trademark wink to someone in the front row. You and your friends will be smiling and clapping along to Gershwin, Boogie Woogie, Chopsticks, and "Roll Out the Barrel." Jillian Snow Harris takes the stage to an unimaginable level as Liza Minnelli with such signature hits as "Cabaret," "We're in the Money," and "I Love a Piano." Liberace said, "I don't give concerts, I put on a show." That's what we do, and what a show it is!
