Allen had created the role of Danny Miller in the world-premiere production of Looped at the Pasadena Playhouse this past summer.
In a statement producer Tony Cacciotti said, "We are all extremely excited to have Chad return to the production. He and Valerie have such remarkable chemistry together and will once again have audiences roaring with laughter. We are so grateful Chad's schedule has allowed him to continue with this project."
As previously reported, four-time Emmy Award winner Valerie Harper will star as Tallulah Bankhead in Looped, which begins performances Dec. 31 at the Florida venue with an official opening Jan. 7, 2009. Performances will continue through Feb. 15, 2009. Rob Ruggiero directs.
Looped, according to press notes, "tells the story of actress Tallulah Bankhead, the original celebrity bad girl who enters a film studio session to re-record (or 'loop') one line of dialogue for her final film, 'Die, Die My Darling.' What ensues is a showdown between an uptight sound editor and the outrageous legend. Southern, but by no means a belle, Ms. Bankhead was known for her wild partying that rivaled even today's superstars, including innumerable affairs with both male and female celebrities and outlandish exploits that were too scandalous to mention. Relish in the outrageously naughty wit of this sultry-voiced stage and film star!"
