Valerie Harper stars as Tallulah Bankhead in Matthew Lombardo's new comedy LOOPED, directed by Rob Ruggiero, is playing at  the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street).

LOOPED opened last night, Sunday, March 14 and BroadwayWorld.com was there!

LOOPED tells the story of Tallulah 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. Brian Hutchison and Michael Mulheren complete the company.

LOOPED plays Tue at 7, Wed-Fri at 8, Wed at 2, Sat at 2 & 8, and Sun. at 3 PM. Tickets are available through http://www.telecharge.com, or by calling 212 239 6200.
