Overview

"You want to be a thing? Make yourself that thing."

1981. Hollywood. Sue Mengers, the first female ‘superagent’ at a time when women talent agents of any kind are almost unheard of, invites you into her Beverly Hills home for an evening of dish, secrets, and all the inside showbiz stories that only Sue could tell…

Back in the 1970s, Sue Mengers represented almost every major star in Hollywood; her clients were the talk of the town and her glamorous dinner parties were legendary. But by 1981 the glory days were fading. Her time was passing as a sleek and corporate New Hollywood began to emerge. The phone’s not ringing so much these days and Sue is forced to face the inevitable truth: the credits roll sooner than you think.

Starring Bette Midler, who makes her return to the stage in her first Broadway play in over 30 years.

A new play by three-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and playwright John Logan following the recent success of Peter and Alice in the West End and his play Red, which played London to great acclaim before transferring to a smash hit Broadway run where it won 6 Tony Awards including Best New Play. Logan’s work as a screenwriter includes the latest James Bond movie Skyfall, Sweeney Todd, The Aviator, Hugo, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Rango, Coriolanus, and Any Given Sunday.
