The Independent spoke with director Lindsay Posner before the premiere, and he praised Lohan, saying, “I’m pleased to say Lindsay has taken to the process faster than any other debut actor that I’ve worked with.” Vulture noted that during the first act the troubled star was hitting her cues and delivering her lines effortlessly, but in the second act, things got dicey for the star, as the site noted, “It was hard not to feel for the other actors, because her presence was so distracting.”

The revival of the 1988 David Mamet play — Madonna originated the same role — only garnered a half-full house for the Mean Girls actress’ theatrical debut. The New York Daily News described Lohan, 28, as “pale and nervous,” constantly relying on a book prop with some of her lines written on it.

 The site also noted that crew members offstage were forced to shout Lohan’s lines to her as she continuously forgot her part in the “small but critical role as Hollywood secretary Karen.”
