What does hip-hop singer-songwriter Cee Lo Green have in common with Liberace? The Strip’s newest production,  “CeeLo Green is Loberace,” answers that question.

The show opened Wednesday at Planet Hollywood's 1,400-seat theater, beginning a 28-show performance that continues Wednesdays-Saturdays through April 13.

So how are the two, whose musical styles are polar opposites, alike? Flamboyance. Green’s show promises plenty of over-the-top production values, just like Liberace’s legendary years at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Dressed in an array of colorful costumes that Liberace would certainly admire, Green, who has won multiple Grammy Awards, promises to be part rapper and part ringmaster. He will lead guests on a journey through several decades with music from the Rolling Stones, Prince and Blue Magic, along with some of his original songs.

Tickets cost  $49.50 to $149.50, plus taxes and fees. They’re available online at Ticketmaster or by calling (800) 745-3000.
