Lindsay Lohan was seen on stage to promote her new play Speed-The-Plow held at the Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Ave, London on September 30th. Seems like Lindsay is working hard recently!
Her otherwise praised performance in the opening night of Speed-The-Plow may have been widely overshadowed by the fact she fluffed a few lines, but Lindsay Lohan aced her second night on the West End according to audience members on Twitter.
While the play itself continues to divide, the former Mean Girls star’s Karen seemingly went off without a hitch on Thursday night (September 25), with no sign of the blatant line troubles that melodramatically hit headlines around the world the night before.
Mark Howson wrote: “A great @lindsaylohan in #speedtheplow tonight. No cues or flubbed lines that I saw. Theatre should never be reviewed on opening night.” Preach! Vampire Soup, meanwhile, tweeted: “She’s here. She’s acting. She knows her lines. Ha! YOU WERE WRONG #SpeedThePlow”.
Headlines on various media outlets were somewhat unfair to the actress following opening night; proving that there’s a reason why the vast majority of other major professional shows are granted a few nights of Previews before the Press Night signals the arrival of official reviews. TMZ went with a hideous “Lindsay Lohan was a DISASTER in debut” headline, while the Daily Beast claimed “London Laughs at Lindsay Lohan”.

Lindsay Lohan is using hypnotherapy to quit smoking. The ‘Mean Girls’ actress has reportedly turned to alternative medicine to kick her nicotine addiction before her West End debut on September 24 for David Mamet’s play, ‘Speed-the-Plow’.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ”Lindsay knows all eyes will be on her and she’s worried if she starts to crave nicotine on stage, it’ll put her off. ”Some people may not believe in the powers of hypnosis, or think it’s all about swinging a watch about, but Lindsay is willing to try anything to make sure she’s a hit.”
The 28-year-old starlet has already gone to rehab six times and in 2013 told talk show host Oprah Winfrey that she has been addicted to cocaine.
When it was announced that Lindsay would be making her stage debut in London this year, the actress admitted that she was nervous on opening night.
She said: ”I’ll be freaking out on the first day. I either do really well under pressure of really horribly. There’s no in between.”
