Theatre33, the region’s bilingual Russian/English theatre, presents the U.S. premiere of Lip Service, a comedy about the power struggle between the self-made cosmetics tycoon, Helena Rubinstein, and her rivals Elizabeth Arden and Revlon. When Helena hires a battle-hardened war-veteran as a personal assistant, her life is turned upside down. As her professional and family conflicts reach fever pitch, will the ghosts of her past topple the world’s richest businesswomen? Or will war-veteran, Patrick, save her from herself?
Inspired by real events, Lip Service is a bright new comedy where 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?
Written by John Misto; directed by Marianna Chebotaryova. Featuring Era Pogosova, Anastasia Podlazova, Max Korotkiy, and Olga Semenova. This production is presented in English.
