Broadway's 'War Paint' Teaches Us to Embrace Risk and Never Settle
Actresses Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole share what the first female celebrity entrepreneurs can teach us today.
In the early 1900s, Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden were considered two of the first female celebrity entrepreneurs in America. They built competing cosmetic empires at a time when women were rarely welcome in the workplace. Now they're subjects of the new Broadway musical War Paint -- and the Tony Award-winning actors who portray them, Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole, say their lessons are just as relevant today.
