Martin Preston as Liberace



Martin Preston re-creates the magic of Liberace in a spectacular full-length show, complete with crystal candelabra, rhinestone-studded grand piano, and the flamboyance and excitement of Las Vegas' greatest musical showman. Mr. Preston is an actor and musician who has devoted the last 18 years to recapturing the music, comedy, and glamour of the late, great Liberace. A classically trained pianist, Martin will astound you with marvelous musical memories, all performed live, of Liberace favorites like The Beer Barrel Polka, Malaguena, The 12th Street Rag, and I'll Be Seeing You, all lushly orchestrated and carefully reproduced from the original signature arrangements.

And the costumes!!! You will witness six spectacular, outrageous, eye-popping creations, all duplicates of actual Liberace designs. "My opening costume [known as the Arctic Emperor] has a quarter of a million hand-sewn sequins, beads, and crystals, not to mention over ten pounds of Swarovski rhinestones,"; says Preston. And that's not all--in addition to five other equally elaborate outfits, he also sports fantastic furs, sparkling rings, dazzling jewelry, and a fabulous floor-length feathered cape that shines with 150 electric lights! Said CNBC's Tom Snyder upon viewing Preston for the first time, "Incredible!"

On stage he will be joined by the handsome song stylist William Garon who will delight you with classic swing tunes, superb standards, and a grand tour of Broadway at its best highlighted by a breathtaking visit with the Phantom of the Opera. Garon has starred in many theatrical productions including My Fair Lady, Milk and Honey, and Oklahoma!, and has toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and the Far East.

Martin Preston has appeared as Liberace in Las Vegas and Atlantic city, in many of the North America’s finest theatres and showrooms, and throughout the world on the Cunard, Holland America, and Princess Cruise Lines. In addition to performing at several gala celebrations at the famed Liberace Museum, Preston is an honored recipient of the Grand Prize in the Liberace Piano Competition.

Recently, Mr. Preston was invited to star in the symphonic production Pops Goes Vegas! His performances as Liberace with the Indianapolis Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada, Detroit Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Phoenix Symphony, and many others, are bringing the magic of Liberace to a whole new audience! But no matter where he is appearing, his greatest thrill is meeting the great showman's many fans, and being told "You ARE Liberace!"

Experience the glitz, the glamour, the sparkling wit, and the magnificent music of
"Mr. Showmanship"
and see why Liberace was Las Vegas' #1 star for four decades!
You won't believe your eyes OR your ears!
