There has never been anyone quite like Wladziu Valentino Liberace. The child prodigy became the highest-paid entertainer in the world during the ’50s, known for his outrageously flamboyant showmanship and astonishing skill. At the same time, he was criticized for his loose interpretations of songs, consistently making them more dramatic than the original composer likely intended. As the late Liberace once said, “I don’t give concerts, I put on a show.” Liberace!, the one-man show presented in conjunction with Farmers Alley Theatre, explores the highs and lows of the titular star’s glamorous life. It’s a moving and entertaining tour de force, filled with a wildly diverse piano score, from Chopin to Rachmaninov to ragtime. Starring David Maiocco, Liberace! celebrates — and captures the essence of — an iconic performer like no other.
