LOOPED star Valerie Harper on Good Day New York

Good Day, Tallulah!

LOOPED’s VALERIE HARPER VISITS

‘GOOD DAY NEW YORK’

Four-time Emmy winner Valerie Harper, currently starring as Tallulah Bankhead in Broadway’s newest comedy LOOPED, visited FOX TV’s “Good Day New York” yesterday to talk about her triumphant return to the Broadway stage as one of the most infamous bad girls in Hollywood lore.

WATCH HERE

LOOPED opened on March 14, 2010 and Valerie Harper received raves:

“Valerie Harper gives an enjoyably big, blustery performance, nailing very 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 Theatre to pick up a few pointers.”  – New York Times

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

“Valerie Harper does a bravura turn in LOOPED.” – Bloomberg.com

LOOPED, written by Matthew Lombardo, 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.     It is directed by Rob Ruggiero and plays at the Lyceum Theatre.
