NEW YORK (AP) -- The Divine Miss M is returning to Broadway, and not as just a producer.

Bette Midler will star in John Logan's new play "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers" in the spring, marking the first time the Grammy, Tony and Golden Globe winner has been on Broadway in 30 years.

The show opens April 24 at a Shubert theatre to be announced later.

Midler will play the legendary Hollywood agent Sue Mengers in the one-character play by Logan, who won a Tony for "Red" and wrote the screenplay for the James Bond movie "Skyfall."

Midler made her Broadway debut in the chorus of "Fiddler on the Roof" and won a Tony in "Clams on the Half Shell." She last produced the musical "Priscilla Queen of the Desert."

She was just complaining of her exhausting 3 yr concert stint in Vegas.

Now she's going to do 8 shows a week in a woman show.

Keep that Blow coming.
