A Drag Queen Will Play Lindsay Lohan In An Off-Broadway Play

For some reason, Lindsay Lohan has not pulled a Paris Hilton and faded into relative obscurity (aka not filming reality competitions in places like Paraguay). Perhaps it's our fascination with a comeback—we can't quite give up those Lohan media inches until she, well, has one. Until then, we'll continue to follow the increasingly sad trials and travails of the former teen star, whether it be her keeping up with her rambling Tweets or watching video footage of her maybe stealing a necklace (okay, we didn't buy that!). Yes, she's a consistent hot mess, and that, my dears, is a hot commodity. So, we're in like Flinn when it comes to the latest endeavor to make a buck off the back of her tragedy—an entire play devoted to Lindsay Lohan. Entitled "Project Lohan," (preview below) the production, which we spotted on Paper & String, will focus on her "tabloid-splashed story" as played by D'Arcy Drollinger, who, if you hadn't guessed by the name, is bronzer-loving drag queen. The dialogue will consist only of actually lines "borrowed from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and Internet gossip sites themselves," including this little gem: “I bust my ass when I’m filming. And when I get time off, yeah, I like to go out and dance. Being an actress is lonely.” Well, at least someone is acting.
Project Lohan, April 28 to May 8, 2011, La Mama Theatre, 75A East 4th Street (between Bowery and 2nd Avenue); 212-475-7710. Tickets available here.
