On January 22 two-time Tony winners Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole, who will return to Broadway next month in the new musical War Paint, took part in a conversation at the Guggenheim in Manhattan, part of the museum's Works & Process series.
The two award-winning actors were joined by War Paint librettist Doug Wright, composer Scott Frankel, lyricist Michael Korie, and director Michael Greif. Vanity Fair special correspondent Amy Fine Collins moderated the panel discussion, which included conversation and performances. The entire event can be viewed above.
Following a sold-out run at Chicago's Goodman Theatre this past summer, War Paint, starring LuPone (Evita, Gypsy) and Ebersole (42nd Street, Grey Gardens) as Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, respectively, will arrive on Broadway this spring, beginning previews March 7, prior to an official opening April 6 at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street). The world premiere officially opened in Chicago July 18, 2016; when it ended its limited engagement August 21, the musical had become the most successful show in Goodman history.
