Looped - 2013 - US Tour Tickets, News, Info & More

LOOPED had its World Premiere at The Pasadena Playhouse in 2008 where it became one of the highest grossing plays in that theatre�s history. Having played the Cuillo Center for Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, LOOPED again broke box office records and later had another successful run at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., before moving to Broadway�s Lyceum Theatre in 2010. Ms. Harper received rave reviews from the critics as celebrity bad girl Tallulah Bankhead and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress. Lombardo�s play has been labeled as one of the funniest comedies in years.



Based on a true story, LOOPED takes place in the summer of 1965, when an inebriated Tallulah Bankhead (Harper) stumbled into a sound studio to re-record (or �loop�) one line of dialogue for her last movie Die, Die, My Darling. Given her intoxicated state and her inability to loop the line perfectly, what ensues is a hilarious showdown between an uptight and conservative sound editor, Danny Miller, and the outrageous legend.

Actually, LOOPED is more specific than that. The movie in question is Die! Die! My Darling!, and by the time Act I opens, filming has already wrapped. We meet Ms. Bankhead as she barges into a post-production editing room with an F word so boisterous and stylish it could only leap from the lips of a diva. Film editor Danny Miller needs her to dub over a single line of garbled audio. He hopes to wrap that up in mere minutes. Tallulah’s Scotch-drenched dramatics have other plans. The play proceeds in pursuit of that single successfully uttered sentence over two acts...

If playwright Matthew Lombardo's searing look at actress Tallulah Bankhead in Looped was the main course, then his spicy confection about Cindy Lou Who in Who's Holiday! - playing this December at The Human Race - is the decadent dessert we have been waiting for. Called a 'raunchy riff on Dr. Seuss,' Who's Holiday! is a wildly funny and heartfelt adult-only comedy about grown-up Cindy Lou Who, as she recalls that Christmas Eve when she first met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has since taken. Who's Holiday! will fill the Loft Theatre with laughter, December 2 - 19, 2021.

Written by Matthew Lombardo, 'WHO'S HOLIDAY!' reconnects us with the infamous Cindy Lou Who, now middle-aged and bitter by the reality of adulthood, living in her shoddy trailer home on Mount Crumpit, former hideout of the infamous Grinch. While she awaits her Christmas party guests, she regales listeners with the bizarre journey her life has taken since that fateful night in Whoville when a certain Grinch tried to steal Christmas. This hysterical and wild parody is a must-see for mischievous ADULT theatre-goers this holiday season!
