PHOTO CALL: Broadway's Looped Meets the Press

News   PHOTO CALL: Broadway's Looped Meets the Press
 
The upcoming Broadway production of Looped — starring Valerie Harper as Tallulah Bankhead — held a photo op and interview session Feb. 9.

Rob Ruggiero (Ella) directs the three-person cast that is completed by Brian Hutchison and Michael Mulheren.

Matthew Lombardo's play, according to show notes, "tells the story of Tallulah Bankhead, the internationally celebrated actress, being called into a sound studio in 1965 to re-record (or 'loop') one line of dialogue for what would be her last film — the dreadful Die! Die! My Darling.' Southern, but by no means a belle, Ms. Bankhead was known for her wild partying and convention-defying exploits that surpassed even today's celebrity bad girls. Given her inebriated state and inability to loop the line properly, what ensues is an uproarious showdown between an uptight film editor [Hutchison] and the outrageous legend."

Here is a look at the Feb. 9 press event:
