I'm looking forward to the much anticipated Broadway show called WAR PAINT, which begins preview performances at New York's Nederlander Theatre on March 7, 2017 prior to an official opening night on April 6, 2017.
War Paint is a new musical which broke several records at Chicago's Goodman Theatre for the past several months. War Paint tells the story of two fiercely competitive "makeup industry" rivals, Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, who came to New York, took a look around and decided to help begin to make a change for women in a world dominated by men for a long time. Two-time Tony Award winner Patti Lupone will play the role of Helena Rubinstein and Christine Ebersole will play the role of Elizabeth Arden.
War Paint takes place during the height of New York society times as we get to witness two self-made makeup industry titans, as they pave the way for a new industry that defined beauty standards in the 20th Century. Not only did these two women battle one another for the most popular cosmetics lines over the years but they also became the country's first successful female entrepreneur's. They managed to keep changing with the times as they also changed how the world saw women differently as well.
Ben Brantley of The New York Times said "the deliciously paired Patti Lupone & Christine Ebersole are knockouts!" The Huffington Post called War Paint "highly entertaining! An intoxicating, knockout hit." The Chicago-Sun Times called War Paint "brilliant, poignant and superbly performed."
Although this season is already looking great with several new shows to consider seeing, I have a feeling that War Paint is going to be one of several hits of the 2016-2017 Broadway Show season. That will make it three years in a row of successful show producing in New York. So much to see, something for everyone really.
Right now, my company Applause-Tickets, has access to War Paint discount tickets for performances through June 18, 2017. The War Paint discount tickets are open-ended but could be taken away if the show garners the great critic reviews that we anticipate. You can call the local Broadway ticket experts at Applause-Tickets at 212-307-7050, 365 days a year and 24/7. We are always here to talk Broadway and to help you obtain Broadway Show tickets for the show of your choosing.
I'd like to wish the creative team and talented cast of War Paint the very best success as they look to shine on the Broadway stage this season.
