Apparently, we weren't the only ones who thought the accusations against Valerie Harper were horrific!
Looped producer Matthew Lombardo's lawsuit against the actress claimed that her cancer cost him $500,000 to replace her and that she misled him in order to get a contract. He lost.

Ouch! Another one bites the dust!
The latest Broadway show on the chopping block is Looped, headlined by Valerie Harper.
The show - which is based off of events surrounding actress Tallulah Bankhead's intoxicated attempt to record one line of dialogue for her final film, Die, Die, My Darling - only made it to New York in early February, but reportedly has not even made enough in ticket sales to cover the cost of production!
So unfortunate. We suppose the theatre just isn't what it used to be!
Better luck next time, guys!
