The hit Broadway play, I’ll Eat You Last, written by John Logan is Triangle Productions new show.
Agent Sue Mengers’ clients were the big names in show business: Streisand, Dunaway, Reynolds, Cher, Nolte, Vidal, Fosse and many more.
Her dinner parties were the envy of Hollywood. When Jean-Claude Tramont directed his first film with Gene Hackman as the lead, Mengers stepped in and got her friend Barbra Streisand to star alongside Hackman, then negotiated the largest contract of any actor in Hollywood – 4.5 million dollars!
The picture flopped, earning only 4.4 million.
Helen Raptis, host of KATU Channel 2’s AM-NW stars in this one-person show about Mengers, who dishes on major Hollywood stars like a runaway train.
It plays through February 16 at The Sandy Plaza,1785 NE Sandy Blvd., Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30; Sunday, February 10 at 2 pm. Seats reserved. $15-$35. trianglepro.org for more.
