Lindsay Lohan Forgot Her Lines, Everyone Laughed at Her

Lindsay Lohan made her debut in Speed-the-Plow last night to less than glowing reviews. The Daily Beast reports that, despite only having one major speech, Lindsay still forgot her lines. The audience started laughing at a struggling Lohan who couldn’t quite pull off David Mamet’s signature dialogue.

After her first audible prompt, which came shortly after the interval, the audience sat patiently. The second led to titters in the stalls. Unfortunately for Lohan, the next line delivered by Richard Schiff (Toby from The West Wing) was: “You have done a fantastic job!”

The laughter grew louder.

You could probably hear people cringing.

Although she was sitting staring at a book, which may or may not have contained clues, a third prompt from the wings had Lohan smirking, and she raised her hand to her heart apologetically. By now, even her serious lines were being greeted with laughter. “I know what it is to be bad, I’ve been bad,” her character Karen emotes. More laughter.

“Oh my god, it’s so embarrassing,” said a woman in the crowd during an unusually long set change. In truth, Lohan remained charming throughout.

It wasn’t all bad though. The review says she would be very passable if she could remember her lines. “It could have been worse” is about the nicest thing anyone has ever said about Lindsay Lohan. She must feel fantastic now that she’s slightly above rock bottom.
