The legendary Vegas showman Liberace is coming to New York! TV actor Richard Kline (Three’s Company
) stars as the piano player and fashion icon in the Broadway-bound musical All That Glitters
. While we can only hope the show is as salacious as the Emmy-winning HBO film Behind the Candelabra
, one thing is for sure: it’s going to be gorgeous. Bob Mackie, the man behind Liberace, Cher and Liza Minnelli’s most memorable outfits, is designing the costumes for the new bio-musical. Below, BroadwayBox compiled photos of 10 real-life wardrobe pieces from Liberace’s closet that we hope Mackie includes in the show.
From Fourth of July to Veteran's Day, this outfit is patriotic and festive.
It's like Batman's cape, only with more shine.
Maybe include a demure blouse for some of the more dramatic book scenes?
This feather extravaganza is the definition of a showstopper.
What better way to end Act 1 than Liberace flying high in a rainbow coat?
The fire and ice costume could add some extra pazazz to an up-tempo tap number.
Nothing makes an entrance like a 50lb coat.
Even in repose, Liberace was more stylish than most. Also, the rings are a must.
Lee serving some Lumiere realness.
The title costume of 'All That Glitters', this closing costume is an audience's dream and a seamstress' nightmare.
