About The Show

War Paint is the unusual story about two trailblazing cosmetic titans- Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, pioneers in defining beauty standards for the 20th century. They made history as the first major female entrepreneurs of their country with their brilliant innovations.

Coming from very humble roots, the sacrifices these cosmetic icons have made to make their name in a fiercely competitive industry are noteworthy. Starring two-time Tony award-winning legends, Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole, War Paint is the tale of their ruthless rivalry and their mutual success in an empire dominated by men. It is the revolutionary story of two women redefined beauty in the 20th century and forever reinvented the way the world perceived women.

Easy way to get your tickets! Really pleased with the service. A friendly Headout staff member meets you at the theater with your tickets just before the show.

One of the most amazing shows I've ever seen! The show tackled an incredibly raw subject from a perspective that we don't usually think about, and it was actually quite uplifting.Amazing show. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would recommend it to anyone wanting the Broadway experience.
