Lindsay Lohan to Make Stage Debut in ‘Speed the Plow’

The actress will star in a London revival of David Mamet's Hollywood comedy 'Speed-the-Plow.'

Buckle up: Lindsay Lohan is speeding toward her West End debut in “Speed-the-Plow,” the 1988 Hollywood comedy by David Mamet.

She’ll play an ambitious Tinseltown striver in a role created on Broadway by another tabloid favorite at the time, Madonna. Elisabeth Moss took on the part in the 2008 Main Stem revival, while Laura Michelle Kelly, current star of tuner “Finding Neverland,” played the character that same year in a West End staging starring Kevin Spacey and Jeff Goldblum.

No other casting for the production has been announced. Lindsay Posner, a West End regular who’s previously directed five London productions of Mamet plays, helms.

Produced by Danny Moar and Simon Friend for Theater Royal Bath Prods., “Speed-the-Plow” runs Sept. 24-Nov. 29 at the Playhouse Theater.
