A multi-media, gender bending theatrical experience, Project: Lohan
chronicles the life of Lindsay Lohan: actress, singer and tabloid
queen. Playwright Drollinger structures this world premiere show using
only published text from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and
internet gossip sites. Lohan’s journey from Disney starlet to
convicted felon is reconstructed in an evocative timeline as both
classic myth and Shakespearean tragedy – with surprising, hilarious
and poignant insights into pop culture, the fragile nature of talent
and the people who surround and exploit it.
From starlet to harlot, from hottie to hot mess, from fashion plate to
prison inmate, 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, 5
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.

clothes she wears to court topping the 2011 Egyptian revolution, has
she become the ultimate reality celebrity?
