Playwright Matthew Lombardo and the producers behind his Broadway production of "Looped" are suing Valerie Harper for $2 million, claiming she intentionally failed to notify them in 2012 that her cancer had returned in a bid to keep her job.

They claimed she couldn't hold on for long before she started to forget her lines.

Lombardo claims the director urged Harper to see a doctor, which she did -- and it was during that visit that she discovered her lung cancer had spread to her brain.
