Commentaires : War Paint arrives on Broadway following an acclaimed Chicago run, where it became the highest grossing show in the Goodman Theatre's history.
A Broadway pairing for the ages, War Paint pits Patti LuPone against Christine Ebersole in this powerful tale of cosmetic giants Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein.
Presse : "Ms. LuPone and Ms. Ebersole (notice how tactfully I’m shifting the order in which they’re mentioned) are not coasting on the market value of their star appeal. They’re strategically deploying the knowledge and craft of a combined eight decades in musicals to make us believe that the show in which they appear is moving forward, instead of running in place in high heels... So, though my eyes occasionally glazed seeing 'War Paint' for the second time, I wouldn’t have missed it, if only to hear its leading ladies’ climactic ballads." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"LuPone’s performance is slathered in gusto. Ebersole’s turn is creamier than any emollient. They’re so good, you wish the show were better. As is, it’s polished to a high shine but bland and scarcely skin deep. And it took not one but two source materials to produce this." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"David Korins’s set and Catherine Zuber’s costumes complement the musical at every turn, and Michael Greif's direction keeps it moving efficiently along. But the show doesn’t make a persuasive case that its stories must be told." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Two Broadway greats in a classy vehicle worthy of their immense talents." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"'War Paint' is a musical about Catherine Zuber’s fabulous costumes and magnificent hats, as modeled by the great Patti LuPone as Helena Rubinstein, and her Highness, Christine Ebersole as Elizabeth Arden. And if those hallowed names mean nothing to you, this is not your show." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
