Book by Doug Wright

Directed by Julia Deter

Hailed as “thoroughly compelling and masterfully entertaining” WAR PAINT is the true-to-life story of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubenstein, masters of self-invention and titans of the cosmetics industry who became the country’s first major female entrepreneurs in a time when only men were thought to be capable of building international empires. This fascinating, female-forward bio-musical spans their 50 year rivalry, is a master-class for two stars and will feature Boston’s own leading ladies, Leigh Barrett and Shana Dirik in one of the first productions in the country since the musical closed on Broadway in November, 2017.
