Lindsay Lohan’s train wreck of a life has been turned into an off-broadway play, reports Playbill. Flattering, or embarrassing? We’re not sure which of these it is.
The play, titled Project: Lohan, is written by D’Arcy Drollinger and directed by Ben Rimalower. It will run from April 29 to May 8 in New York. Playwright Drollinger also plays Lindsay in the play, and the cast also includes Clayton Dean Smith, Brandon Olson, Cindy Goldfield, Emily McGowan and Brian Reiss.
Described as a “multi-media, gender-bending theatrical experience,” the show only uses published text from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and internet gossip sites. Kind of a neat concept, if you ask me.
Here’s how the show is described:
“From starlet to harlot, from hottie to hot mess, from fashion plate to prison inmate,” the press notes states, “Lindsay Lohan has been the subject of arguably one of the most publicized rise and falls in showbiz history. The youngest person to host the MTV movie awards and earning over $7 million a picture before she turned 18, Lindsay had it all, but her love/hate relationship with the paparazzi played a significant role in her seemingly out-of-control spiral. The money, the fame, the feuds, the media-hungry parents, the lesbian lover, the insatiable paparazzi, five trips to rehab, two DUI’s, possession of cocaine, shoplifting, physical abuse and even carjacking — all played out in the public eye — will be reinterpreted for the stage; and will include other such luminaries as Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Hillary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johansson, Samantha Ronson, Dina and Michael Lohan, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Leslie Sloan Zelnick and Wilmer Valderrama.”
This will be nothing short of entertaining, I can tell you that much. I wonder if Lindsay will pop in to see the show? She does make trips to New York quite often, so how amazing would it be if she did a cameo?
The play will be housed at La MaMa, E.T.C., which is located at 74A East 4th Street. For tickets, priced $18/$13 students and seniors, call (212) 475-7710 or visit www.lamama.org.
