War Paint , currently running at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street), played a sold-out run in Chicago last summer where it became the most successful show in Goodman Theatre’s history. The show was nominated for four 2017 Tony Awards, including “Best Actress in a Musical” for both of the leading ladies.
