Actor Brian Hutchison will resume the role of "Danny Miller" in the National Tour of LOOPED starring Four Time Emmy Award® Winner & Tony Award® Nominee Valerie Harper. Hutchison created the role in the 2010 Broadway production.
"We are all so excited to have Brian back!", playwright Matthew Lombardo said in a statement. "He is a wonderful man, a terrific actor and amazingly funny in this role. Valerie and Brian together are an extraordinary first-class comic team!"
Hutchison's Broadway credits include Man and Boy (w/ Frank Langella) Looped, Exit the King starring Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon, Proof, and The Invention of Love. He has performed in the Off-Broadway productions of From Up Here at the Manhattan Theatre Club; Mr. Marmalade at The Roundabout Theatre Company; People Be Heard at Playwright's Horizons; The Hiding Place at The Atlantic Theatre Company and She Stoops To Conquer at Irish Rep. Regionally he has worked at Yale Rep, Huntington Theatre, Westport County Playhouse, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage, Bay Street Theatre and a host of others.
LOOPED had its World Premiere at The Pasadena Playhouse in 2008 where it became one of the highest grossing plays in that theatre's history. Having played the Cuillo Center for Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, LOOPED again broke all box office records and later had another successful run at Arena Stage in Washington, DC before moving to Broadway's Lyceum Theatre in 2010. Ms. Harper received rave reviews from the critics as celebrity bad girl Tallulah Bankhead and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress. Lombardo's play has been labeled as one of the funniest comedies in years.
LOOPED is produced by Tony Cacciotti, Ann Cady Scott & The Tallulah Organization in association with The Pasadena Playhouse. The design team includes Adrian Jones (sets), William Ivey Long (costumes) Michael Gilliam (lighting) and Michael Hooker (sound).
