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."
