Star Agent for the Stars
This is a story that Broadway groups will cherish as they are introduced to a woman who started with nothing and rose to the heights of success. In the ‘70s, Sue Mengers became one of the most powerful agents in Hollywood. She came to the US as a child, escaping from Hitler’s Germany and went from a life of hard times and poverty to luxury and wealth. She started out as a receptionist at a boutique Hollywood agency and eventually rose to great heights at I.C.M. and William Morris. Her clients included Barbra Streisand, Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway and Michael Caine.
“I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers” reveals not just the agent. Mengers, who was also known to be a graceful hostess who created some of Hollywood’s most magnificent parties, is also viewed in this role. Anyone who was anyone coveted an invite to one of Mengers’ gatherings. Midler will take on the challenge of playing a multifaceted woman who was driven, charming and smart. Broadway group sales at a group discount for Midler’s return to Broadway after a hiatus of more than 30 years should be strong.
