A Cover Story: Looped

PlayBlog   A Cover Story: Looped
Valerie Harper returns to Broadway, portraying Tallulah Bankhead in Matthew Lombardo's Looped. The production begins previews at the Lyceum Theatre Feb. 19.

The work tells the story of 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 and the outrageous legend.

Rob Ruggiero directs the three-hander, which also features Brian Hutchison and Michael Mulheren.
