Fathom Events Presents Takei’s Personal Story in a Special One-Night
Encore Event

Back by popular demand, straight from the bright lights of Broadway to the big screen, and inspired by the true-life experiences of George Takei (“Star Trek,” “Heroes”), Allegiance tells the moving story of one family, inspired by Takei’s, whose life is upended by the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.

Box Office Now Open for War Paint the Musical

A NEW BROADWAY MUSICAL
STARRING TWO-TIME TONY AWARD WINNERS
PATTI LUPONE AND CHRISTINE EBERSOLE

FIRST PREVIEW MARCH 7, 2017
OPENING NIGHT APRIL 6, 2017
AT THE NEDERLANDER THEATRE

The acclaimed new musical WAR PAINT, starring two-time Tony Award winners PATTI LuPONE and CHRISTINE EBERSOLE,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) andElizabeth Arden (Ebersole). 

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.

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.

When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz (Ruffalo) gave up his dream of an education to support his father.  Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate.  His wife (Hecht), his estranged brother (Shalhoub), and the wily furniture dealer (DeVito) hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.  One of the most personal plays by the consummate voice of the American everyman, Arthur Miller’s The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future.
