Nominated for both an Emmy and Golden Globe Award, actress Stefanie Powers is starring in Matthew Lombardo’s hilarious comedy Looped at the Bushnell.
The actress joins the Morning Extra talk about the show and her role as Tallulah Bankhead.
Southern, but by no means a belle, Tallulah Bankhead was known for wild partying and convention-defying exploits that surpassed even today’s celebrity bad girls. Based on a true story, the play is set in a 1965 sound studio. Ms. Bankhead has been summoned to re-record, or loop, a single muffed line of dialogue from what would be her last film, Die, Die My Darling. It’s a simple task, but ultimately takes hours when Bankhead arrives so inebriated she’s unable to loop the line properly. What ensues is an uproarious showdown between an uptight film editor and the outrageous legend. Held hostage to Bankhead’s antics, her recollections spill out as her talk turns to scandals and rumors that have followed her for years.
