Inspired by Lindy Woodhead's book War Paint, as well as by Ann Carol Grossman and Arnie Reisman's PBS documentary The Powder & the Glory, the show examines the ascent and rivalry of cosmetics entrepreneurs Helena Rubenstein (LuPone) and Elizabeth Arden (Christine Ebersole), whose 50-year tug-of-war gave birth to an industry. Directed by Michael Greif and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, War Paint features a book by Doug Wright and score by Scott Frankel and Michael Korie.
War Paint opened at the Nederlander Theatre on April 6 and is nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical (LuPone and Ebersole), Scenic Design (David Korins), and Costume Design (Catherine Zuber).
