    (That Woman) Was Extremely well received by the audience with near full houses for 3 weeks. Our stage design worked better that I even dared to hope, using lighting in the acting areas as required but with fixed areas upstage for each office. The pink set was commented on by many – it was meant to convey the feminine aspect of the two women.

    THAT WOMAN, a new little play about the makeup wars between the industry giants (Rubenstein, Arden, Lauder and Revlon) by our local playwright, Jo Denver, is a wonderful, stylish night out! And not just for the girls! The essence of Helena Rubenstein is perfectly captured by Michelle Connelly and the comedy makes the history lesson a fun one. In her latest work, Sunshine Coast playwright, Jo Denver, explores the rivalry between America’s founding beauty queens, Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden. Leading the makeup wars of the 1920’s – 1960’s, the women run head to head (and streets ahead of Revlon, Estee Lauder and the lower placed beauty brands). This is not just a history lesson for budding beauty therapists and cosmetic counter queens (though it’s a terrific, entertaining start!); it’s also an insightful imagining of one woman’s struggle to attain a balance between her family and her career. It sounds like a variation on the clichéd battle cry WOMEN CAN HAVE IT ALL (we can but not all at the same time)but it doesn’t come across that way. That Woman is a gentle feminist nudge and a timely reminder that it’s hard work and unfaltering self-confidence (and a bit of savvy marketing) that makes a winning combination.

    Not only for the ladies, That Woman boasts fabulous fully drawn characters and a fascinating story of what it takes to make a single life a success. That Woman breathes new, fashionable life into the Sunshine Coast theatre scene. If you haven’t been to see anything for a while it’s time to dress up and head to Lind Lane Theatre to catch the world premiere run of Jo Denver’s enlightening and highly entertaining That Woman.Xanthia Coward September 2012

    A fascinating insight into the lives, loves and, most importantly, rivalries of the biggest names behind the beauty industry that took off during the early twentieth century. A story that was soon to be, quite literally, on everybody’s lips; the winners and the losers, the successes and the heartbreak. How Helen Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden came to be household names at a time when women were just discovering equal rights at the polling booth, let alone in the boardroom.” A Saks buyer (who also played the journalist in the production by Dolphin Theatre, Auckland 2014 )

    To date ‘That Woman’ has been the most rewarding theatrical experience for me. It has been an absolute pleasure to play the role of Patrick O’Higgins, and to portray the complexity of this man and his relationship to Madame Rubenstein.
