Is Lindsay Lohan already causing major headaches during rehearsals?


Lindsay Lohan was back in NYC for a few days to spend some time with her family and celebrate her birthday. She returned to London earlier this week because she has to rehearse for Speed-the-Plow! Lindsay Lohan, stage actress. The show doesn’t start ‘til September, but Lindsay needs all the “rehearsal” she can get. And by that I mean she’s doing rails in the coat closet while her understudy rehearses.

Lindsay Lohan is back to her old tricks! As exclusively reported last month, the troubled actress is attempting to re-launch her stifled career across the pond, but according to the new issue of Star, the 28-year-old is already behaving badly on the set of her new theater gig, David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow.

Sources tell the magazine that an off-the-wagon Lohan has been clubbing all night, then arriving to rehearsals late and unprepared, and sometimes not showing up at all.

“The cast is already really annoyed,” an insider says. “The director told her that, basically, it’s a one-strike deal; if she misses one more practice or comes in late again, she’s done.”

The star has been spotted partying until the wee hours at London hot spots Whiskey Mist and Chiltern Firehouse. Lohan was publicly chastised by the CEO of production for her unprofessional behavior on the 2006 set of film Georgia Rule. In 2013, The Canyons screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis said his star was often “mixed up,” “scattered” and “bossy.”

But! WhatsOnStage talked to the spokesperson for the production and the spokesperson told them that “rehearsals are not yet under way and casting still in progress.” Oh, that’s interesting. So, Lindsay is just back in London for fun and games? And then when rehearsals officially start, then we can say that she’s a mess who never shows up on time, etc, etc? Because that’s exactly what’s going to happen. This Radar/Star story was just a preview of coming attractions. I have an alternate theory for the endgame for this production too: what if no actor wants the trouble of signing on to a Lindsay Lohan experience? If they don’t find the actors, will the production have to be canceled?

PS… look at her busted spray-tan in this photo with poor Aliana.

    In all fairness, maybe she confused Speed the Plow with Speed and Blow?

  2. Brin says:

    No way, she is the consummate professional.

  3. dorothy says:

    They were stupid enough to hire her.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    all student- and aspiring stage actresses, RUN don’t walk to audition as Lohan’s understudy.

    this might just be your big break!

  5. neelyo says:

    This show has got to be some sort of scam a la THE PRODUCERS. No way anyone is burning their money by investing in that show so there’s something else going on.

    Oh my god that photo with the spray tan! She looks like a 45 year old chiseler working the Vegas strip and Ali looks like her daughter (still can’t believe she’s a model).

  6. Grumpycat says:

    If the goal was for her skin to be the same shade as her hair, this was an astounding success. I haven’t seen a fake tan look SO orange, perhaps ever.
    Although maybe she has a touch of drinking induced jaundice that is contributing to the overall crayola shade.

    “Lohan has been clubbing all night, then arriving to rehearsals late and unprepared, and sometimes not showing up at all”

    Really? What a surprise

  8. Faye says:

    How can she be back to her old tricks when she never left them?

  9. Cleveland Girl says:

    Wasn’t this the show that ruined Jeremy Pivens career (because he was partying all the time)? Maybe it is a pre-requisite for the play.

  10. Talie says:

    I don’t think there is a cast yet… she’s the only one who has been announced. This whole production has been a bit spotty, the roll out is weird.

    I’m shocked! no, wait…what’s the opposite of that? whatever it is, THAT is what I am.

  12. quinn says:

    The only thing I care to see Lohan in at this point is a snuff film.

  13. DanaG says:

    So rehersals haven’t started? Umm how come Lindsay tweeted pictures going to work doing read throughs. Don’t tell me she was lying? What is strange is that hers is a minor role so why is she the only one in it still? Surely it can’t be too hard to pull together. I have a feeling this is never going to happen anywhere other then Lilo cracked out head. Do we really know for certain this is real?

  14. Lucy2 says:

    Sorry, but she’s been a known mess and insurance nightmare for years. Anyone who hires her is either a complete moron, or as others have suggested, is pulling some kind of insurance scam.

  15. GeeMoney says:

    So The Cracken continues to live up to her name? Shocker.

  16. Tracy says:

    It is amazing that she is still referred to as a star.

  17. Nicolette says:

    Doesn’t she do that everywhere she goes?

  18. Ice Queen says:

    This will be over for her before it begins…

  19. Bess says:

    I was thinking that one of her middleastern
    sheik buddies is bankrolling the play in exchange for various “services”.

  20. Bread and Circuses says:

    Ali’s hair looks pretty. Does her hair have a natural wave? Because mine does, and although I can get loose curls like that, there’s nothing I can do to make it look as shiny as that.

    As for the story: And water is wet.

    But there’s amazing physics at work here, isn’t there? Only the Cracken could ruin rehearsals that haven’t even happened yet! She’s the Schrodinger’s cat of professional mayhem. She exists in a quantum state that superimposes two irreconcilable realities: wrecking the play with her antics, and lying about being in a play.

    Everyone stop observing her. She might pop out of existence entirely. [/nerd-jokes]

    Lindsay is a mess… but I still really like her style. I love the white shoes in the one photo!

  22. jwoolman says:

    Has she finished her community service sentence yet? Did Oprah make her do it all rather than just some scenes for the show? I thought it was equivalent to about a month of full time work.

  23. Shelley says:

    Ali looks so much better than she did a year or two ago. She looks much healthier and not so painfully skinny.

    Lindsay could be an angel on this project, but stories about her behaving badly will still be put out there, because they are so easily believed. It’s harder to believe stories of good behavior, where she is concerned.
