Two-time Tony Award-winners Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole star in a World Premiere musical about two business titans, and their infamous rivalry.

Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden defined beauty standards for the first half of the 20th century. Brilliant innovators with humble roots, both were masters of self-invention who sacrificed everything to become the country’s first major female entrepreneurs. They were also fierce competitors, whose 50-year tug-of-war would give birth to an industry. From Fifth Avenue society to the halls of Congress, their remarkable rivalry was ruthless, relentless and legendary; pushing both women to build international empires in a world dominated by men.

In a musical about makeup, it’s no surprise that the looks are on point.
