La MaMa E.T.C. presents the world premiere of Project: Lohan, written by D'Arcy Drollinger and directed by Ben Rimalower, April 29-May 8.



Playwright Drollinger plays Lindsay in a cast that also includes Clayton Dean Smith, Brandon Olson, Cindy Goldfield, Emily McGowan and Brian Reiss.

Described as a "multi-media, gender-bending theatrical experience," the show is uses only published text from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and internet gossip sites.

"From starlet to harlot, from hottie to hot mess, from fashion plate to prison inmate," press notes state, "Lindsay Lohan has been the subject of arguably one of the most publicized rise and falls in showbiz history. The youngest person to host the MTV movie awards and earning over $7 million a picture before she turned 18, Lindsay had it all, but her love/hate relationship with the paparazzi played a significant role in her seemingly out-of-control spiral. The money, the fame, the feuds, the media-hungry parents, the lesbian lover, the insatiable paparazzi, five trips to rehab, two DUI's, possession of cocaine, shoplifting, physical abuse and even carjacking — all played out in the public eye — will be reinterpreted for the stage; and will include other such luminaries as Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie, Hillary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johansson, Samantha Ronson, Dina and Michael Lohan, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Leslie Sloan Zelnick and Wilmer Valderrama."

This Equity-approved showcase features set design by Chris Minard, lighting design by Wilburn Bonnell, costume design by Ryan J. Moller, sound design by Andrew Puccio, choreography by John Paolillo, hair design by Jon Jordan and projection design by Jason Corson.
