You've got to love the multimedia extravaganza Project: Lohan, which just made its west coast premier at San Francisco’s The Costume Shop. According to Fishbowl LA, the promoters appeared on radio station KALW 97.1 FM and offered a discount to anyone who had a “difference of opinion” with the law and told listeners that if you have a DUI conviction and/or have a parole card, you can take it to the box office and receive $5.00 off the price of your ticket.
Project: Lohan, written by D’Arcy Drollinger (who plays Lindsay) and directed by Tracy Ward boasts has a bevy of crossdressing actors playing 60 different characters. Drollinger, a San Francisco playwright, used only previously published text from court documents, magazines, websites, 911 calls, and TV shows. "Lohan's arc from Disney starlet to convicted felon is reconstructed in an evocative timeline as both classic myth and Shakespearean tragedy," say the promoters, "with surprising and poignant insights into pop culture, the fragile nature of talent, and the people who surround and exploit it."
The show runs until Aug. 19 at The Costume Shop.
