Here comes The Glitter Man
by Andrew Kiraly | posted January 9, 2014
We wouldn't call it full-blown rhinestone fever, but there does seem to be something of a Liberace renaissance (or maybe just a flare-up) afoot -- what with the well-reviewed TV movie "Behind the Candelabra" and the resurfacing of troubled Liberace paramour Scott Thorson to spout some tabloid tales. Maybe enough time has elapsed that the sun-bright, brain-aching dazzle of Liberace's persona and taste is telling pop culture's Geiger counter that it's now safe to approach.
Tonight's a night for an approach! From 5-7p tonight at The Cosmopolitan, a panel of Liberace-ists (his costume designers Michael Travis, Jim Lapidus and Anna Nateece) will host a lively, cocktail-fueled roundtable as they discuss the costume exhibit "Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful" now on display on the first floor of the Cosmopolitan. Bring your sunglasses -- bedazzled, of course.
Pick up your Desert Companion today at one of these Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations.
Also available at Clark County and Henderson libraries.
