The Liberace Foundation & Museum’s Cabaret Fund was created this summer, and the inaugural Gala Concert produced by Broadway imports and “Jersey Boys” cast members Keith Thompson and Philip Fortenberry raised more than $15,000 for the preservation and technical development of the Museum’s Cabaret Showroom including lighting and sound equipment.
