Oh dear the West End stoops to a new low - any stunt to get bums on seats.

She will be great as dead Nessarose. And the title Wicked suits her to a tee. Maybe Lady Macbeth?

Possibly the best and only reason to ever consider voting for UKIP right here. Tighten those borders now boys and girls..

A producer/director cannot seriously consider this actress for a role on the west end and then expect their show to be credible... Can they?

You guys in the UK do realize that, despite her antics, she is (was) a well respected actress, often referred to as one of the best of her generation..

Owen i think the best of her generation is a bit OTT

She was great in The Parent Trap and Mean Girls, her others were kinda naff. If you watch her acting today she is totally awkward. I enjoyed The Canyons more than most but she was not great, ok at best. On top of that her track record and time keeping is appalling, even recently on her docu series. No way would she fit in to such a scheduled routine like a show.

She was a pretty good child star who has not been able to transition to adult star (wait that sounded like i meant porn)
Namo i love u but we get it already....you don't like Madonna

I didn't say she should do Broadway (or shouldn't), I'm just cuing you in that here in the States, the girl had the respect of her peers (find articles online from Meryl Streep and Jane Fonda who go on about her talent). It's why so many refuse to give up on her. She isn't Tara Reed, she was a strong intuitive actress, and yes, had the possibility of being the best of that generation. Easily.

And then she turned 18 and poof. The clock struck midnight. Can you imagine the cost of the insurance policy they would have to take on her.

There are many reasons why she's called "Lindsay La Loca" here in the U.S. Those producers who made this fateful decision will rue the day they cast that trainwreck in this play.

Karen in S-T-P is a really tricky role to pull off. I really hope she's good and, er, present....

Who calls her La Loca? I really don't think that's a thing.

La Loca= crazy female. It's just one nickname that has been attached to her.

Yeah, I'm definitely not going to fly to the UK to see /that/ happen. I think this is going to be horrible, but who knows, maybe I will be surprised and it won't be that bad...

Oh dear

The West End board stoops to a new low, with silly, unfunny and childish, video clips and I thought this was just the preserve of the Broadway board.

A true new low.

Madonna didn't bring anything to the role when she played, and I think that Lindsay will bring even less...

Since there is only one video/gif , I guess you are referring to me Phantom. I actually think it's funny. Dare I say that a new "low" was achieved when some enterprising individual decided to hire someone (Lohan) with such a dodgy work ethic and a horrendous reputation. The producers could have selected a professionally trained and experienced theatre actress, but instead decided to take a risk on Lohan. Good luck with that.

And already there's 'trouble at 'mill'. Will she make opening night? Place your bets.. Though could all be muck raking on behalf of the press

For those not adept at reading between the lines to the real subtext of "vegas" this is the actual link - my bad. And for some reason I can't correct it at the moment...

Her casting has certainly piqued my interest. I've seen two previous productions of this play and it isn't one that I love but, on paper at least, I think Lohan is interesting and appropriate casting for this role. However, given the well-documented issues that Ms L has I certainly wouldn't book a ticket in advance since I wouldn't want to run the risk of getting to the theatre and finding that the understudy is playing. So basically the only way I'd see this (allowing for the fact that the actors for the male roles which are the true leads have yet to be announced) would be at the last minute and not at a cost of £50+. When the marketing is solely geared around Lohan so far, I would imagine she'd have to screw up pretty royally to justify them getting rid of her, since she seems to be the main raison d'Ítre behind a play that is hardly considered a classic but is getting its 3rd full scale London revival since the original in 1989. Also, surely it can't be in full rehearsal yet, since they haven't announced full casting yet and this length of rehearsal period is unheard of, except at the National for Mike Leigh
