It’s a heady sensation, thanks to the buoyant, witty writing of Mr. Logan…” —NY Times. “As famously abrasive as she could be, it’s impossible to believe the late Mengers wouldn’t have puckered up for John Logan’s big wet kiss, I’LL EAT YOU LAST…The single-character piece is exactly what it advertises—80 irresistible minutes of primo tinseltown dish from a certified master chef.” —Hollywood Reporter. “Wickedly entertaining…[filled] with killer quips and hysterical set pieces.” —NY Post.
