Iâ€™LL EAT YOU LAST Announces Rush Ticket Policy
April 3, 2013
Iâ€™LL EAT YOU LAST, the new one-woman play which marks Bette Midlerâ€™s return to Broadway, announces its rush ticket policy:
AÂ limited number of $35 rush tickets (including facility fee) will be available for purchase in-person at theÂ Booth Theatre box office (222 West 45th Street) when it opens for that dayâ€™s performance(s) only. There is a limit of two tickets per person. Tickets are subject to availability and may not be offered at all performances.
Iâ€™LL EAT YOU LAST: A CHAT WITH SUE MENGERS, written by John Logan and directed by Joe Mantello, will begin previews Friday, April 5 and open Wednesday, April 24 at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street).
Appearing on Broadway for the first time in 30 years, Tony and Grammy Award-winning superstar Bette Midler will play the legendary agent Mengers (1932-2011) in the new, one-character play.
Sue Mengers was an American original. She was the first female â€œsuperagentâ€ at a time when women talent agents of any kind were almost unheard of. She came from near poverty, a refugee from Hitlerâ€™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 didnâ€™t exist, she invented that as well: â€œSuperagent.â€ It was a term Hollywood all but coined for her. By the 1970â€²s, she represented almost every major star in Hollywood and went on to become the townâ€™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).
Iâ€™LL EAT YOU LAST is produced on Broadway 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, and Scott & Brian Zeilinger.
