Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Stefanie Powers plays actress Tallulah Bankhead in the comedy “Looped” starting Tuesday at 8 p.m. until March 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hippodrome (12 North Eutaw St., Baltimore).
Powers steps in for an ailing Valerie Harper who was nominated for a Tony in the role and played it in Washington a few years ago. Powers has a strong connection to the material — she was Bankhead’s co-star in “Die Die My Darling,” the film for which Bankhead is looping a scene in “Looped.” Powers said she has fond memories of Bankhead and got to know her well.
Bankhead was known for wild partying and was for unconventional liberal causes that broke away from Southern Democratic traditions. The play takes place on a sound studio in 1965.
Tickets are $43-$92. For more information, visit baltimore.broadway.com.
