Curtain up!! Avonworth’s virtual Spring Musical, War Paint will be streaming soon!!!
War Paint, a new musical, is the fascinating story of rival cosmetics moguls Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein who, despite their humble beginnings, sacrificed all to become America’s first female corporate titans. Their intense rivalry was ruthless, relentless, and legendary, leading both women to build international business empires catering to the ever-changing needs of women in a world dominated by men, and establishing standards for beauty for over four decades.
War Paint opened on Broadway in 2017 with stage legends Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole as Rubinstein and Arden, respectively. This innovative show spans the 1920s through the 1960s from the posh salons of upper Manhattan to the Cotton Club, with lavish costumes, swing dancing, dynamic personages, and a masterful score including numbers like “Behind the Red Door,” Arden’s signature “Pink,” Rubinstein’s expansive “Forever Beautiful” and the glorious “Beauty in the World.”
