Lindsay Lohan Gets To Stay In London Longer

Somehow Lindsay Lohan talked her way into a stage production of David Mamet's Speed The Plow in London. The dates have been announced and Lindsay will be required to be there for eight shows a week. The producers will be lucky if she shows up for half of them and half of those she will probably be a mess. Count on one or two mediocre performances a week for your money. The play starts its run on September 24 and runs through November 30. I can already see her making excuses for the last week of the show because of American Thanksgiving. The week of Halloween is probably a no go. She will probably decide she is a huge fan of Columbus and ask for a week off to celebrate him in October and of course she will need to honor veterans by taking the week of Veteran's/Remembrance Day off to honor the troops. Combined with her sick days and some vacation and her commitments elsewhere, the only day she will probably show up is the first day if rehearsal and the press day set for October 2nd. Other than that your guess is as good as mine as to the days she will actually be on stage. Lindsay is in great company when it comes to displaying her acting talents because Madonna was the first to play the role of Karen.

Yay!

Madonna looks really good with her hair like it is shown in that poster

D Brown said...

How big is the acting role? If she is just doing a glorified walk on then risk is mitigated. I wonder if one of her boyfriends is financing the play?

sugarbread maker said...

Obviously the producers don't get OWN

Steampunk Jazz said...

I wish her the best in all of her endeavors..
WTF was she thinking?

SecretTorture said...

Hopefully this mess is career ending for whomever hired her.

katydid said...

Better there than here! Sorry Londoners :(

Tricia Shaw said...

OT...anyone else pleased to bits that Jenny and Sherry axed from View(I barely watch but this reason to start again)

Maybe they can shoot across the pond and do a revival with Lindsy of Dreamgirls(more like Nightmare)

Or better yet, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
UK style

Violet, on behalf of the Americans here,I would like to thank you as the British representative, for your service in housing this trainwreck. It will be remembered long after she is gone...

Topper Madison said...

Actually, Madonna was great in it. Her production was nominated for a Tony.

ethorne said...

@Tricia-There's a post about that.

I wish I could be as lousy at my job as she is at hers and still get paid.

msgirl said...

She's has a small but important part.Plays start at curtain time, no waiting for cast. I think her understudy will do great!

lazyday603 said...

Mamet plays are populated by lowlifes of the worst sort, so this may just be typecasting.

QueenAnne Guido said...

It's a tiny tiny part.

That said, will she be usint a teleprompter or cue cards? She could hit it old school and have her lines taped to props on the stage....

GatorGirl said...

Yep her understudy will do great and actually get lots of press for being the one who took over when Linsanity was sleeping, drunk, hungover, "exhausted", not answering her phone, crashing into semis, busy with A2A with Arabic married men or just down at the local police station answering questions about that missing jewelry! Good times!

Dexamyl said...

I hope she gets her shut together. This just doesn't seem like the best start, though.

BTW, Dlisted reprinted Enty's BI about the lesbian soap star. Michael K's guess: Deidre Hall.

sandybrook said...

Speed the Plow=quickie fuck?

Sugar said...

Please report back, Violet!

ultrgrl said...

I'm pretty sure she signed on thinking this was a production of "Plowed on Speed" which is totally understandable with the rarity of sobriety for her. Hard to get all the words and ideas right when you're always hammered.

Meauxelle said...

Her understudy will forever be grateful to LoHo for her big break!

rajahcat said...

this will not turn out well......

MeanieRhysie said...

There, there, Karen...s'okay, WE all know you're nothing like Lilo!! ;)

MeanieRhysie said...

Yasssss!!! Ass to ass, betches!!! @2@

MeanieRhysie said...

Seriously, who the hell hires her for anything but ass-to-ass? They know she's a class-A fuck-up, so it shouldn't be a surprise to anydamnbody when she fucks up yet again!

I do wish she'd get her shit together, though. Sad.

meme deemed said...

I'd rather watch cucumbers grow than waste precious life oh Ho Lohan. Hope this will be the final exorcism of Lohan off planet earth. While at it, put Ho Hilton and all Kardadhians on the same shipping off thus planet.

Murphy said...

Don't feel bad for them, feel happy for Lindsay's understudy who is going to get tons of stage time

Scallywag said...

I hope she doesn't come down with mercury poisoning. Though her co-stars might.

Kat has left the building said...

Lol @violet you are so funny! Please give a detailed report ala Enty's visit to 2Broke Girls!!!

Basil said...

Actually, this isn't as stupid an idea as it seems, at least for the producers. They probably know Lohan will be a no-show half the time, but the play will get tons of press and sell more tickets than normally would. The only ones losing out would be the ticketbuyer who were hoping to see a train wreck, but get the understudy instead. It will be like buying a lottery ticket.

crila16 said...

This is totally fine. Lindsay's understudy is psyched. She'll be working non-stop.

Malibu Borebee said...

Lindsay's a much better actress than Madonna. Typing that sentence had a very surreal quality to it.

The play is a three-hander. No news yet on who's playing Fox or Gould. It will be interesting to see who is willing to work with her.

Northbynorthwest said...

This reminds of the 50s & 60s when actors would f*ck up royally in Hollywood- they'd violate their contract, or be linked to Commie groups, or be too far gone into drink- and were forced to bolt over to Europe to find anybody that would hire them.

Katie Telling said...

booked - probably going to boo a bit just for shits and giggles...
