Pick of the week theatre
Lip Service Helena Rubenstein’s (Amanda Muggleton, pictured left with Tim Draxl) make-up empire is constantly staving off the barrage of attacks by her rivals, Elizabeth Arden and Revlon. Her three business mantra’s have always ensured her longevity of success — thrift, ruthlessness and a steely resolve to take no prisoners. But when a personal assistant (Draxl) becomes her unlikely confidant, she realises she may not be the hardened businesswoman she once considered herself to be. Ensemble Theatre, 78 McDougall Street, Sydney. Today, 4.30pm and 8.15pm. Tickets: $42-$71. Bookings: (02) 9929 0644 or online.
