The Hoogland Center for the Arts is pleased to present the regional premiere of the play LOOPED by Mattew Lombardo.

The show will be presented in the Peggy Ryder Theatre on the third floor of the Hoogland on Saturday, February 27 at 7pm and Sunday, February 28 at 3pm. The Hoogland is located at 420 South Sixth Street in downtown Springfield, Illinois. Based on a real event, which has been the subject of gossip for years in Hollywood, Looped takes place in the summer of 1965, when an inebriated Tallulah Bankhead, well-known for her husky voice, outrageous personality, and devastating wit, returns to the studio to redub — or loop — one line of dialogue for her last movie, Die! Die! My Darling! Bankhead’s outsized personality dominates the young, frustrated film editor who is knocked for a loop by the tempestuous stage and screen icon.
