Looped - 2013 - US Tour

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.

Based on a real event, which has been the subject of gossip for years in Hollywood, Looped takes place in the summer of 1965, when an inebriated Tallulah Bankhead, well-known for her husky voice, outrageous personality, and devastating wit, returns to the studio to redub — or loop — one line of dialogue for her last movie, Die!

On Saturday, February 22, I had the pleasure of seeing LOOPED at the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre in Berlin, CT.  This comedy by Matthew Lombardo is based on a true story that took place back in 1965.  Director Kris McMurray brings out the best in talented actress Kelly Boucher who stars as Tallulah Bankhead, as well as talented actor Chris Pearson, who plays Danny Miller.  The stage chemistry between Kelly Boucher and Chris Pearson is comically brilliant, and further enhanced by James J. Moran, who provides live vocals from the back of the theatre, as Steve the sound engineer!  The deliveries are sensational, from all three cast members, making all three characters completely believable.  The facial expressions, body language, vocal tones and mannerisms displayed by Kelly Boucher and Chris Pearson, including their reactions to each other, are phenomenal, both staying in character the whole time, to the point in which as an audience member, it is easy to forget that you are not watching the real people who are being portrayed.  The sharp contrast between Tallulah's over-the-top personality and Danny Miller's more professional and proper personality is where the majority of the humor arises.  The audience was laughing all throughout the show!
