Rehearsal images have been released of Miriam Margolyes and cast in the Park Theatre production of Madame Rubinstein.

The world premiere of John Misto’s new comedy stars BAFTA award-winning Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter, Romeo & Juliet, The Age of Innocence) as ‘Helena Rubinstein’, Frances Barber (Doctor Who, Silk, Julius Caesar) as ‘Elizabeth Arden’, and Jonathan Forbes (‘Fergal’ in Channel 4’s hit show Catastrophe) as ’Irish’.

Park Theatre’s Artistic Director Jez Bond will direct Miriam Margolyes, Frances Barber and Jonathan Forbes in the world premiere of Madame Rubinstein, a brand new comedy by John Misto, playing at Park Theatre from 26 April – 27 May, with a press night on 3 May.

Set against the glamorous skylines of 1950s Manhattan, Madame Rubinstein is a bright new comedy about world-leading cosmetics entrepreneur Helen Rubinstein’s power struggle with rivals Elizabeth Arden and Revlon.

Jez Bond said, “I’m delighted to be directing this world premiere that I’m sure will delight and amuse as well as inform and challenge audiences.” The highly anticipated production is the fastest selling show in Park Theatre’s history.

Madame Rubinstein will run from 26 April 2017 until 27 May 2017 at the Park Theatre.
