BERLIN — Connecticut Cabaret Theatre presents “Looped,” written by Matthew Lombardo, and directed by Kris McMurray, through March 21, according to an email from the Theatre.
“Looped” depicts an actual 1965 recording session in which an intoxicated Tallulah Bankhead, portrayed by Connecticut Cabaret Theatre favorite Kelly Boucher, required eight hours to dub a single line from her final movie “Die! Die! My Darling!”, while antagonizing the film editor, Danny Miller, played by Chris Pearson, assigned to the job.
Kelly Boucher an Ellington resident was last seen in Connecticut Cabaret Theatre’s production of Matthew Lombardo’s “Tea at Five” where she effortlessly played the iconic Katharine Hepburn. Chris Pearson returns to the Connecticut Cabaret stage after his last production of the audience favorite “Clever Little Lies,” a comedy by Joe DiPietro.
Kris McMurray, producer and director states “‘Looped’ introduces Tallulah Bankhead to the next generation. Tallulah defined what it meant to be a celebrity. With iconic women such as Crawford, Davis, Hepburn and Taylor, Tallulah Bankhead redeveloped herself and gave the audience the brass and star they wanted to see. This production is none the less. You will fall in love with the classic and infamous Bankhead again.”
