Last night Adriana invited me to see Shakespeare in the park with a group of her friends and even tho I decided to “take it easy” this weekend, I decided that I couldn’t pass up a chance to see a Shakespeare play in Griffith Park. FOR YEARS I’ve been trying to see a show at Griffith and, for whatever reason, I just haven’t been able to get my shizz together to see a play. Last night, finally, I got to see what I’ve been missing. The Independent Shakespeare Company staged productions of Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing this summer and last night, we saw Much Ado. Now, all y’all know how much I love Much Ado (considering I am featured in the Much Ado film by Joss Whedon) so I’m sure you can imagine how fun last night was for me. The production was really great, the actors fantastic and the company was perfect. I had a great night. More »

Because I was feeling much better yesterday than I was the day before, I decided to meet up with my friend Tamar in Burbank to see a play titled A or B? which stars one of her friends. Tam and I have been talking about seeing a play together for some time now so finally, the opportunity arose and we jumped at the chance. Before the show, we grabbed a bite to eat at Umami Burger in Burbank (which is now in the former building that used to be Papoo’s Hot Dog Show) and then it was showtime! I am very happy to say that Tam and I had a great time last night because the play was really very good. More »

Sooo, maybe it's not so bad?
Lindsay Lohan may be getting some not-so-hot reviews from her audience, but she’s got some of the biggest celebrity names coming out to support her stage debut. Personally, I’d be curious to see how bad (or good) Lohan‘s performance in Speed-The-Plow is right now. I never watched that Elizabeth Taylor… situation… but I did see the Twitter reactions, so one has to wonder if Lohan is actually working with any legitimate talent anymore. I can’t say, but I did think it was interesting that both Oprah Winfrey and Lupita Nyong’o came out to support her. Click inside for more!
"London Laughs at Lindsay Lohan’s West End Debut"
Earlier this year, we learned that Lindsay Lohan would be making her stage debut in London’s West End in the play Speed-The-Plow and after she spent an entire summer partying on holiday, she finally got around to play rehearsals a few weeks before the show opened in previews last night. As expected, Lindsay‘s stage debut was less than stellar. In fact, it was downright hilarious … which isn’t the intent of the drama. According to reviews of her performance last night, Lindsay forgot her lines and was unable to properly deliver the lines she did remember. But, to be fair, despite the problems, it didn’t sound like her performance last night was a total disaster … it just sounds like it was just really, really bad. More »

Lo shares with us today a photo that was taken of her on the actual stage during rehearsals. Whether she’s ready or not, her theatrical debut date is quickly approaching. More »
