With the Spring season now well underway, both the West End and London Fringe have a number of fantastic new productions that should be on your radar over the coming months. From revivals of classic musicals to brand new plays from some of the most exciting new writers, there really is a rich selection of plays and musicals lighting up London this Spring. 10. Occupational Hazards Hampstead Theatre From 28 April, 2017
The Park Theatre brings you the world premiere of a brand new comedy starring BAFTA award-winning stage and screen favourite Miriam Margolyes as Helena Rubinstein, the cosmetics entrepreneur extraordinaire.
Set against the glamorous skylines of 1950s Manhattan, Madame Rubinstein is locked in a brutal power struggle with her arch rivals from the business world of beauty: Elizabeth Arden and Revlon.
The play documents her rise to power from humble beginnings as a Polish-Jewish immigrant to becoming one of the most poweful women in cosmetics. But as her professional and family conflicts reach fever pitch, will the ghosts of a turbulent past topple one of the world’s richest businesswomen?
In Madame Rubinstein, the nails are painted and the gloves are off. Yet when the lipstick bleeds and the makeup fades, what is there left to hide behind?
