BWW TV: Watch Highlights of Bette Midler in I’LL EAT YOU LAST!
April 18, 2013

Bette Midler stars in Tony Award winner John Logan‘s new play, I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, in a strictly limited 89 performance engagement. Appearing on Broadway for the first time in 30 years, Tony and Grammy Award-winning superstar Bette Midler will play the legendary Hollywood agent Sue Mengers (1932-2011) in the new, one-character play. BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at Midler in action below!

Sue Mengers was an American original. She was the first female “superagent” at a time when women talent agents of any kind were almost unheard of. She came from near poverty, a refugee from Hitler’s Germany, and worked her way up through pluck, charm, and a legendary wit. In that uniquely American way, she invented herself; and when the career she wanted didn’t exist, she invented that as well: “Superagent.” It was a term Hollywood all but coined for her. By the 1970’s, she represented almost every major star in Hollywood and went on to become the town’s most renowned hostess.

The creative team includes three-time Tony Award winner Scott Pask (scenic design), Academy Award winner Ann Roth (costume design), three-time Tony nominee Hugh Vanstone (lighting design), and Drama Desk Award winner Fitz Patton (sound design).

I’m kicking myself that I can’t get to New York to see this. I hope Bette wins every award possible for this one. Great variety in the clips. Ironically, I just interviewed Billy Friedkin last week about his new book. He was a delight!
