The one-woman show I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers brings Bette Midler back to Broadway. Midler plays ‘70s superagent Mengers in a play that brings the amazing woman to life. Mengers was smart, determined and charming and managed to rise from nothing to the pinnacle of success. It’s the Divine Miss M as another Divine Miss M.
Bette Midler plays agent to the biggest stars Sue Mengers in I’ll Eat You Last by John Logan. Mengers, a refugee from Adolf Hitler’s Germany, came to the U.S., managed to work past poverty and became a top Hollywood agent who was coveted by the biggest names in entertainment. Plus, her parties made an invite to Mengers’ home a premium Hollywood ticket.
In I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers, Midler creates the super agent using her amazing energy, skilled acting technique and resonant personality. It’s been more than 30 years since Midler appeared on Broadway and this show, directed by Joe Mantello and written by Tony-winner John Logan, looks to be a hot ticket.
