VALERIE HARPER GIVES AN ENJOYABLY BIG, BLUSTERY PERFORMANCE, NAILING EVERY LAST LAUGH! SHE COMMANDS THE STAGE HANDILY AND REVEALS PRECISE COMIC TIMING.  EVEN THE ESTIMABLE WISECRACKER JOAN RIVERS MIGHT WANT TO HUSTLE DOWN TO THE LYCEUM THEATER TO PICK UP A FEW POINTERS.” The New York Times

“VALERIE HARPER IS A HOOT IN MATTHEW LOMBARDO’S ENJOYABLE COMEDY!” NY Daily News

“VALERIE HARPER HAS A FEROCIOUS SENSE OF COMIC TIMING AND KNOWS HOW TO MAKE AN ENTRANCE!  FOUR-LETTER WORDS FLY AND SO DO THE LAUGHS!” Associated Press

“A TOUR-DE-FORCE performance from Valerie Harper! Impeccable comic timing.” Backstage

Looped is extremely funny, thanks in large part to Valerie Harper’s pitch-perfect portrait of the seminal diva. Harper’s witty, exuberant performance captures Bankhead’s cartoonish flamboyance but also shows us the cunning, resilience and genius for irony behind it.” USA Today
