Lindsay Lohan to make stage debut in London

LONDON (AP) - Linsday Lohan is heading for the London stage - in a play about the hysteria of Hollywood.

Producers announced Thursday that Lohan will make her professional stage debut in September in David Mamet's satirical drama "Speed-the-Plow."

The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" star, who has had well-documented troubles with alcohol, drugs and the law, will take the relatively small but complex role of an ambitious secretary in Mamet's drama about two Hollywood producers trying to close a major deal.

In the original 1988 New York production the role was played by Madonna.

The 27-year-old former child star has had six stints in rehab and several brief periods in jail, and recently appeared in her own reality TV show. Her most recent movie was the universally panned "The Canyons."

You forgot rich, that came from somewhere. The real no talents are waiting tables on Sunset and bars on La Cienega.

Wrong. Many unknowns out there paying their dues.

...So you're saying, the real talents are the ones like Ms. Lohan, who spend more of their time lying passed out "under" the tables, rather than waiting on them. I see.

I never watched her, but I wish she could find something to interest her and change her lifestyle. She is a beautiful girl, and could become a star. I think it is so sad for someone so young to waste her talents.

I truely admire Lindsay Lohan's courage, to go from an aspiring actress to alcohol,drugs, and the law and make a comeback. I watched her on The Tonight Show and found her to be very sincere. She reminds me of another aspiring actress Drew Barrymore, who had similiar problems and went on to be in many memorable movies. Good Luck on Stage Lindsay.

Not sure amazing is the right word,but she is talented. Now,if she culd just stay away from booze,drugs, and Mommy Dina and Daddy Michael,she might end up okay.

She can barely act in film, how will she survive on a stage where she can't do 22 'takes' to get a scene right??

She's beautiful, funny, talented (she can sing, too!) and capable of great things. She controls her own destiny. I hope she makes it through the fog and can come out a winner on the other side.
