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

Starring

Patti Lupon and Christine Ebersole

WAR PAINT will begins previews on  March 7, 2017 and with a opening night scheduled for  April 6, 2017 at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street).  The musical played a sold-out run in Chicago last summer where it became the most successful show in Goodman Theatre’s history. 

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. 

TICKETS:
Tickets range from $79 - $169. Premium tickets range from $199-$250. For more information, visit www.warpaintmusical.com or call 877.250.2929.
