Ripcord, which is helmed by Tony and Emmy winner David Hyde Pierce and also stars Marylouise Burke, sees two elderly ladies butting heads when forced to share a room in a nursing home. The play follows their no-holds-barred battle of wills - to the death.
Taylor told the hosts of "New York Live" that she loved the script of Ripcord so much she jumped on board before she'd even finished reading the first act. "I got through that first act and I said, 'Oh I have to do this play,'" commented the Broadway vet.
Both Taylor and Dratch, who is an "SNL" regular, confessed that the play is so funny, it has been difficult not to laugh on stage. "So far, no breaking," said Dratch. "I've seen your lips quivering," Taylor quipped in reply.
