The Hippodrome Theatre will present Harper in her 2010 Tony Award-nominated turn as actress Tallulah Bankhead March 5-17, 2013. Subscribers were informed in a recent letter. (In an earlier posting of this story, Playbill incorrectly reported that Looped would replace a booking of Lombardo's High.)
The comedy-drama concerns the encounter between a sound engineer named Danny Miller (an actor yet to be named) and a drunken, late-career Bankhead during a "looping" session in which he has to record a line of dialogue for what would be her final movie, "Die, Die, My Darling."
Harper is the Emmy Award-winning actress most widely known for TV's "Rhoda." She previously appeared in Golda's Balcony at the 2,200-seat Hippodrome, and Lombardo's play Tea at Five starring Kate Mulgrew also played there.
Looped is a co-production between Broadway Across America and Tony Cacciotti, Ann Cady Scott & The Tallulah Organization in association with The Pasadena Playhouse.
The design team includes Adrian Jones (sets), William Ivey Long (costumes) Michael Gilliam (lighting) and Michael Hooker (sound).
