BAFTA Award winner Miriam Margolyes stars in John Logan’s scintillating solo show – a titillating night of tinseltown tattle.
Welcome to the glamorous home of Hollywood agent Sue Mengers. It is 1981 and if an actor isn’t represented by Sue, you haven’t heard of them. She has the entire A-list on her books: Streisand, Hackman, Dunaway, Cher – to name just a few. And more names will be dropped, secrets divulged, and dirt dished as this wickedly brash and determined ball of chutzpah reveals how she went from non-English speaking Jewish migrant to a film industry powerbroker. It was a fabulous career … while it lasted.
When you meet Sue Mengers you’ll wonder why you’ve never heard of her. Afterwards you’ll wonder if you could ever forget her. A legendary Hollywood figure played by a legendary stage performer, I’ll Eat You Last is a theatrical delight not to be missed.
Original Broadway production produced by Graydon Carter, Arielle Tepper Madover, James L. Nederlander, The Shubert Organization, Terry Allen Kramer, Stephanie P. McClelland, Jeffrey Finn, Ruth Hendel, Larry Magid, Jon B. Platt, Scott & Brian Zeilinger.
