Listen to: Liberace Museum To Close Its Doors
The Liberace Museum in Las Vegas will close its doors next month after decades of showcasing the elaborate threads, jewelry, cars, pianos and candelabras of the man known as “Mr. Showmanship.” The extravagant pianist, who died of AIDS in 1987, was one of the highest paid entertainers in the world at one time. Jack Rappaport, the museum’s president, talks about why the museum is closing and what’s going to happen to all that stuff.
