Other Honors for This Role

Tony History:

Quotable Quote:
“[Tallulah] is a fabulous character, absolutely marvelous, and the trick is not to make her a caricature. As fulsome as she was, as extravagant and outrageous and very dramatic, she comes from a very real place. Every generation thinks they invented bad behavior. She really did.” —Harper in an interview with Broadway.com, 3/10
