    1. It is a slight piece but one that could be great deal of fun with the right actress. Only one act and consisting mostly of fun, gossipy Hollywood stories from the sixties and seventies. I liked reading it a lot but kept thinking directed correctly, and with a strong actress who can hold a stage and audience, it could be something more than this little thing.

    2. I'm a big fan of one person shows, on stage or in script form, and this one, about Sue Mengers, the Hollywood super agent of the 1970s is terrific. Waiting in her Malibu living room for a phone call from Barbra Streisand, the set up works and her stories are great.

    3. This is a play. When I read the review and bought this I believed it was a book. It is well written and I think it will be fantastic on Broadway. Was disappointed because I thought I was purchasing one thing and got another.

    4. Funnier--and more succinct--than the bio. Saw the play first, then read the bio. She was a smart, driven, lusty, funny woman, but seeing the play moved me MORE. I'd recommend this 'chat' before the bio

    5. I saw the play on Broadway staring Bette Midler and loved it. This book is basically a manuscript of the play and it's HILARIOUS!

    6. Logan's play, one-woman show starring Bette Midler as Sue Mengers, is a great read and makes you want to see the play…and read more.
