Sunday in the Park with George review [Broadway 2017]

War Paint review

A glossy, if rather slender, new musical, War Paint is a chance to luxuriate in the performances of a pair of Broadway’s greatest divas. Two-time Tony Award winners Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole prove utterly deserving of such a splendid showcase for their talents, each performing in peak condition. 611 more words
