Behind the Candelabra - takes a behind-the-scenes look at Liberace tempestuous relationship - from their first meeting backstage at the Las Vegas Hilton to their bitter and public break-up.
Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace: virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship, extravagance and candelabras, he was a world-renowned performer with a flair that endeared him to his audiences and created a loyal fan base spanning his 40-year career. Liberace lived lavishly and embraced a lifestyle of excess both on and off stage. In summer 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into his dressing room. Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th November at 2.15pm Cost: £4.65 adult or £3.85 concessions. Advanced booking is recommended.
