The cast and creators of Looped, written by Matthew Lombardo and directed by Rob Ruggiero, met the press on Tuesday, February 9.

The production will begin previews at the Lyceum Theatre on February 19, with an opening set for March 14. The production stars four-time Emmy Award winner Valerie Harper as legendary film star Tallulah Bankhead, Brian Hutchison as Danny, and Michael Mulheren as Steve.

The show takes place in a sound studio in 1965 to which Bankhead has been summoned to re-record one line of dialogue for what would be her last film, Die, Die My Darling. But when she shows up inebriated -- and unable to record the line -- trouble ensues.

The creative team includes Adrian W. Jones (scenic design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Charles LaPointe (wig design), Ken Billington (lighting design), and Michael Hooker, and Peter Fitzgerald (sound designer).
