War Paint's Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole Discuss Their Simpatico Relationship

The new musical by Scott Frankel, Michael Korie, and Doug Wright opens at the Nederlander Theatre.

The lives of pioneering businesswomen Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein are the focal points of the new Scott Frankel, Michael Korie, and Doug Wright musical War Paint, now running at the Nederlander Theatre. Playing these two cosmetic-industry legends are a pair of equal stature, Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole. The two-time Tony winners see themselves as simpatico, a fact that gives them an even greater enjoyment of the piece, which has a great deal of contemporary resonance, as well. On opening night, the stars and creative team told TheaterMania about the many shades of color they supply.
