While I realise that the Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, is based on Scott Thorson's book of the same name, what is the meaning of the title?

Liberace pretty much always had a candelabra on or near his piano while playing, as he was known for his very elaborate and often flamboyant stage presence. As such "Behind the Candelabra" is a play on the phrase "Behind the Scenes", but it refers to his frequent use of candelabras in his performances.
