Is looking good really the best revenge? This summer’s most diva-licious stage match-up may answer that question. War Paint sees Tony winners Patti Lupone and Christine Ebersole offering tour-de-force depictions of beauty industry rivals Helena Rubenstein and Elizabeth Arden. From the creative team who crafted previous Ebersole triumph Grey Gardens comes this interweaving of the lives of these competitors who rose from humbler beginnings to become prominent entrepreneurs — and how each in the process sent her right hand man running to the other woman’s company. Who will win this well-dressed war of catty comments and cosmetics? Find out at Broadway’s Nederlander theater.
