Lindsay Lohan Hoping to Make West End Debut in a Play?
A new article in the UK's Sunday Times details the trials and tribulations of an interviewer for that paper being canceled on repeatedly over a number of weeks by troubled starlet, Lindsay Lohan. But, why did Lohan want to talk to an arts journalist in the first place?
He reveals that 'My recent diary is full of days, sadly, marked "Lindsay?". April was a month of telling people I might have to leave at any minute. Apparently, she wanted to speak to Culture because she wants to be on stage, in the West End. I was at a lunch with a casting director, and she laughed. Who would insure her? We came up with Waiting for Lindsay, a two-week theatre run for which people pay £20 to watch Mean Girls and hope..."
Known these days mostly for her troubles with the law, alcohol, and drugs - at age 11, Lohan made her motion picture debut in Disney's remake of The Parent Trap (1998), a critical and commercial hit. Her next motion picture, Disney's remake of Freaky Friday (2003), was also a success at the box office and with critics. With the release of Mean Girls (2004) and Disney's Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005), she seemed destined for great things. Lohan's debut studio album, Speak (2004), was certified platinum. Her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw) (2005), was certified gold.
Between 2010 and 2013, Lohan went into rehabilitation three times, and spent much of her time entangled in legal problems stemming from misdemeanors and probation violations. In 2012 and 2013, she did further television work, including starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the biographical TV film Liz & Dick (2012). In 2013, she starred in Paul Schrader's independent film The Canyons.
