A Tuesday- Mini Scoop - Sold Out Upcoming Musical War Paint Times Talk to Be Livestreamed Tonight!
“WAR PAINT TIMES TALK”
FEATURING TWO-TIME TONY AWARD WINNERS
PATTI LUPONE AND CHRISTINE EBERSOLE
Two-time Tony Award winners PATTI LuPONE and CHRISTINE EBERSOLE, returning to Broadway this spring in the acclaimed new musical WAR PAINT, will be featured guests at this evening’s New York Times “War Paint Times Talk,” hosted at the Times Center. They will be joined by Tony-nominated composer SCOTT FRANKEL. The sold-out event will be streamed live from at www.TimesTalks.com and www.Facebook.com/NYTimes. Alexandra Jacobs will moderate.
WAR PAINT begins previews and opens at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street). The musical played a sold-out run in Chicago this summer where it became the most successful show in Goodman Theatre’s history. WAR PAINT charts the legendary lives of two trailblazing women – cosmetics entrepreneurs Helena Rubinstein (LuPone) and Elizabeth Arden (Ebersole).
WAR PAINT will also feature Tony Award nominees JOHN DOSSETT and DOUGLAS SILLS, who are reprising their roles from the Chicago world premiere production. Dossett will portray Tommy Lewis, Miss Arden’s husband and chief marketing officer, and Sills will portray the ambitious Harry Fleming, Madame Rubinstein’s clubby confidante and faithful ally.
WAR PAINT tells the remarkable story of cosmetics titans Helena Rubinstein (LuPone) and Elizabeth Arden (Ebersole), who defined beauty standards for the first half of the 20th Century. Brilliant innovators with humble roots, both women were masters of self-invention who sacrificed everything to become the country’s first major female entrepreneurs. They were also fierce competitors, whose 50-year tug-of-war would give birth to an industry that would forever change the face of America. From Fifth Avenue society to the halls of Congress, their intense rivalry was ruthless, relentless and legendary—pushing both women to build international empires in a world dominated by men.
