Marc Platt & David Stone: ‘War Paint’ Up Next On Broadway After ‘Wicked’ Success

War Paint is coming to the Nederlander Theatre on Broadway. The show is fresh off a record-breaking run at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre. War Paint’s tryout run was the theatre’s most successful show ever, and as it moves to the Great White Way it’s already moving into strong contention for the Best Musical award at this season’s Tonys. War Paint is amply stocked with celebrated greats of the stage world. Christine Ebersole (from USA’s Royal Pains) and Patti LuPone (from Showtime’s Penny Dreadful) star as Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubenstein. The show has been mounted by the celebrated team of Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) and David Stone (Next to Normal). This blockbuster production duo is already famous for the shows they’ve collaborated on in the past, including Three Days Of Rain, If/Then, and, of course, the runaway hit Wicked.
