It was announced late last month that due to creative differences, the producers of Orphans and Shia LaBeouf would part ways and he would not continue with the production. LaBeouf then revealed additional details on why he dropped out of the production via Twitter, including emails with Alec Baldwin, Tom Sturridge and more.
Tonight, March 26, LaBeouf attended the first preview of Orphans on Broadway. According to a Tweet from The New York Times' Patrick Healy, he was the "first person giving a standing o...in the very first row on the aisle".

Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge star in Lyle Kessler's play, directed by Daniel Sullivan, and produced by Frederick Zollo andRobert Cole. This production will mark the first Broadway staging of the play.
In ORPHANS, two orphaned brothers are living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Treat, the eldest, (Foster), supports his damaged younger sibling Phillip (Sturridge) by petty thievery, and makes the house a virtual prison for the seemingly simple-minded Phillip. One night he kidnaps a rich older man, Harold (Baldwin), who turns out to have his own motives and becomes the father figure the boys have always yearned for.
