“Hilarious. Brilliant. Has to be SEEN, not described”—Cape Cod Times
GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
Liberace lived a life of flamboyance, sparkle, and lavish costumes. In this funny and touching show, the virtuoso musician gets one more chance to glitter and shine as he tickles the ivories through his favorite songs. Miss Peggy Lee is beyond description. These two music legends defined four decades of music and pop culture
Formed in 2016, Lee Squared features New York City favorites David Maiocco as Liberace and Chuck Sweeney as Peggy Lee. Long time friends and collaborators, Maiocco and Sweeney had been performing these iconic characters indiviually and decided that two Lees were better than one (Liberace was known to friends as “Lee”) So they imagined what it would be like if both were alive and touring together today. The result is an evening of music and laughter, from the virtuoso playing of Liberace, to the sultry jazz and swing of Miss Lee.
Maiocco and Sweeney are each Bistro and MAC Award Winners, for Musical Direction and Outstanding Impersonation, respectively, and have jointly won the 2017 Bistro Award for Lee Squared in the category of Outstanding Musical Comedy Duo! Maiocco, a graduate of The Boston Conservatory, spent two decades in NYC as a Music Director, Off Broadway Conductor, and Broadway Orchestra Pianist prior to taking on the role of Liberace. David is truly honored to perform as a licensed artist of The Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Visual Arts in professional theatres nationwide. Sweeney is a veteran musical theater artist who has performed solo shows–as himself or as Peggy Lee– in cabarets from Montreal to Miami Beach and points in between. An accomplished actor, he has also had roles in Off-Broadway productions and regional theaters (e.g. South Pacific, Personals, etc)
