War Paint stars Christine Ebersole and Patti LuPone, the two two-time Tony winners who are currently Tony-nominated for their performances, give Today an insider’s look at the new Broadway musical about cosmetics giants Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein.

Watch the segment below.

Directed by Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then, Grey Gardens), War Paint reunites Scott Frankel and Michael Korie—the songwriting team of Grey Gardens and Far From Heaven—with Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright (Grey Gardens, I Am My Own Wife, The Little Mermaid). Tony winner Christopher Gattelli choreographs.

The musical is inspired by Lindy Woodhead's book War Paint and the documentary film The Powder & the Glory, by Ann Carol Grossman and Arnie Reisman. It tells the story of cosmetic titans and rivals Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, who, throughout the 20th century, built international empires in a world dominated by men.
