Lindsay Lohan Cancels Performances Of London Play

Actress Lindsay Lohan cancelled Wednesday's performance of her London play "Speed The Plow" due to an illness.

On Wednesday the 28-year-old "Mean Girls" star tweeted, "So sorry everyone but I'm too ill to perform and down for the count. Doctor wants me to rest. Won't make shows tonight but please enjoy #speedtheplow"

There were two scheduled shows Wednesday, a matinee and an evening performance, so Lohan would have missed both, but it seems she defied doctors' orders.

The "Speed The Plow" Twitter account posted Thursday morning, "Defying doctor's orders and showing true professionalism, Lindsay was back onstage last night, and will be on for this evening's performance"

Just a week ago Lohan appeared on the BBC's "The Jonathan Ross Show" and talked about her commitment to her craft, saying "Look this is my show, I'm not missing a show! That will never happen!"

The London production of the David Mamet play has been making headlines since it opened earlier this month when Lohan forgot her lines, prompting a stage manager to call them out to her. Despite strong initial ticket sales, the show received mix reviews and sales have dropped off.Related Slideshow:
