'Looped' Coming to the Bushnell

Valerie Harper to play "Tallulah Bankhead"

LOOPED starring Valerie Harper
January 24-February 6, 2013

Written by Hartford native Matthew Lombardo, 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.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Valerie Harper will recreate her Tony Award-nominated performance as Tallulah Bankhead. Rob Ruggiero, who directed Looped on Broadway, will re-stage the show for Hartford and a subsequent tour.

Location: Maxwell and Ruth Belding Theater in Hartford

Tickets: $32.00-$57.00

Individual tickets for the show goes on sale to the public Thursday, September 27.
