Liberace: The Man, The Music and the Memories Eyes Broadway

Liberace: The Man, The Music and the Memories Eyes Broadway
Wayland Pickard
A biographical show about the flamboyant entertainer Liberace is eyeing a Broadway run next season. Wayland Pickard, a frequent Liberace imitator, will star in Liberace: The Man, the Music and the Memories, directed by Pamela Hall. A fall run is in the offing, although no dates or theater have been set.

Liberace re-creates a Las Vegas showroom performance by the pianist who died in 1987, known for his outrageously elaborate costumes and ever-present onstage candelabra. The show will include "assorted special guest stars," according to a news release and is being produced with the approval and cooperation of the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts.

Pickard performed a similar show under a different title in Los Angeles in 2006 and at another California venue earlier this year. He has toured as a jazz pianist/vocalist, appeared with symphony orchestras and headlined solo shows such as Comedy at the Symphony and Stand-Up Piano. Pickard is the co-author of a musical called Is This Any Way to Start a Marriage? and has also appeared in such films as Beethoven’s 5th and The Great Santini.

Liberace: The Man, the Music and the Memories will be produced by Edmund Gaynes and Nancy Bianconi, who have previously presented the biographical off-Broadway shows The Big Voice: God or Merman? and Picon Pie.
