I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers by John Logan
For more than 20 years, Sue Mengers' clients were the biggest names in show business: Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Burt Reynolds, Ali McGraw, Gene Hackman, Cher, Candice Bergen, Ryan O'Neal, Nick Nolte, Mike Nichols, Gore Vidal, Bob Fosse...If her clients were the talk of the town, she was the town, and her dinner parties were the envy of Hollywood. Now, you're invited into her glamorous Beverly Hills home for an evening of dish, dirty secrets and all the inside showbiz details only Sue can tell you.

"A delectable soufflĂ© of a solo show...The tightly closed doors of the Beverly Hills aerie in which Mengers held court are being thrown open, and for the price of a ticket we all get to feel a little twinkly for a night. It's a heady sensation, thanks to the buoyant, witty writing of Mr. Logan..." -NY Times.

Jenny Keeps Talking by Richard Greenberg
In three monologues, one actress plays three women. First we meet Jenny, an established left-wing columnist whose newspaper is in the throes of a takeover. In the second monologue, we meet Jenny's ne'er-do-well sister, Claudia, an Upper West Side bohemian and failed opera singer whose life has been a string of get-rich-quick schemes and disastrous sublets. In the play's last scene, the women's grandmother speaks to us about her secret plans for her granddaughters. The doorbell rings, and all three are about to get together for a bumpy evening of settling their scores.

A touching but wickedly funny one-woman show about the feud between two widely different sisters and the grandmother who has to reconcile them in the end....a minimalist Sisters Rosensweig...vintage Greenberg." -NY Newsday

Featuring: Harriett Trangucci
