Madame Rubinstein

Madame Rubinstein

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?
