Looped Tickets

Lyceum Theatre

Looped tells the story of internationally celebrated actress Tallulah Bankhead as she is 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, Bankhead was known for her wild partying and convention-defying exploits that outshone even today’s celebrity bad girls. Given her inebriated state (and inability to loop the line perfectly), what ensues is a hilarious showdown between an uptight and conservative sound editor, Danny Miller, and the outrageous star.

This show is closed.

Performances ended on April 11, 2010.

Story

What Is the Story of Looped?
Looped tells the story of one very long day in a sound studio in which real-life Hollywood star Tallulah Bankhead (often called “the original celebrity bad girl”) tries to dub (or “loop”) a single line of dialogue for her last film. Bankhead was as infamous for her offscreen antics, which included wild parties, drugs and alcohol and scandals galore, as she was for her acting triumphs. The outrageous star butts heads with the uptight film editor left in charge of the looping session.

Critics' Reviews

""Valerie Harper does a bravura turn on Broadway as Tallulah Bankhead in Matthew Lombardo’s Looped.""

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg News

""Valerie Harper gives an enjoyably bog, blustery performace, nailing every last laugh. She commands the stage handily and reveals precise comic timing.""

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
