We welcome the stars of the new Broadway musical War Paint, Christine Ebersole and Patti LuPone, along withthe director of their show Michael Greif. War Paint chronicles the amazing careers ofcosmetic-industry-pioneers and moguls, Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein. Born in poverty on opposite sides of the world, they both rose to unparalleled heights of success and became two of the most powerful and wealthy women of the 20th century, as well as business rivals for decades. This bio-musical about their lives is the perfect vehicle to bring together two of the most eminent and talented actresses of today, who share the same stage for the first time in their celebrated careers.

    I was able to catch only the second half of the “War Paint” segment, which was delightful and informative. Maybe I missed it, but did anyone bring up the possibility of the lead actresses switching roles (a la Cynthia Nixon & Laura Linney in “The Little Foxes”) not just as a marketing gimmick but as a challenge to the actresses and a path to greater insight into the characters?
