Lindsay Lohan has made her London debut in Speed-the-Plow.
It has been met with a mixed response. With the more flattering reviews calling her amateur and the less-flattering calling her incompetent. She allegedly forgot lines and got laughed at by several members of the audience.
The Daily Beast reports, “Lindsay Lohan only has one major speech in the David Mamet play that marks her West End debut. Unfortunately, she couldn’t remember how it went.” During first-night previews, the audience laughed whenever Lindsay tried to deliver a line. Here’s more:
After her first audible prompt, which came shortly after the interval, the audience sat patiently. The second led to titters in the stalls. Unfortunately for Lohan, the next line delivered by Richard Schiff (Toby from The West Wing) was: “You have done a fantastic job!”
The laughter grew louder.
Although she was sitting staring at a book, which may or may not have contained clues, a third prompt from the wings had Lohan smirking, and she raised her hand to her heart apologetically. By now, even her serious lines were being greeted with laughter. “I know what it is to be bad, I’ve been bad,” her character Karen emotes. More laughter.
“Oh my god, it’s so embarrassing,” said a woman in the crowd during an unusually long set change….
The chaotic second half had not started promisingly when the occupants of the box closest to the stage tipped a glass of champagne over someone in the front row. It ended with a minor wardrobe malfunction as Lohan’s blouse puffed out—untucked—below what was supposed to be a smart new outfit. [via The Daily Beast]
Last week, Lindsay shared this photo to Instagram with the caption “On stage!!! Rehearsing and vocal practice #speedtheplow”.
In other news, Lindsay is reportedly hounding Tina Fey to make Mean Girls 3 (following 2011 TV movie Mean Girls 2). She told London’s Time Out, “I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another ‘Mean Girls,’ like an older version where they’re all housewives and they’re all cheating. That would be really funny. I’ll harass Tina to write it.”
Also, Star Magazine (via Gossip Cop) reports that Lindsay is on the prowl for a new man. A source claims she wants to “hunt down a posh English sugar daddy!” Adding, Lindsay “doesn’t care how old he is [she] wants to pull an Anna Nicole [Smith].”
