UPDATE Thursday: According to E! News, Lindsay Lohan performed in Wednesday night’s production despite tweeting about her illness just hours before the show. Producers of the show released a statement, reading: “Unfortunately Miss Lohan has been suffering from a viral gastric bug for several days but has shown true professionalism in continuing to perform. However yesterday, on doctor’s advice, she rested throughout the day whilst prescription medication took its desired effect and we were delighted that Miss Lohan subsequently felt well enough to perform yesterday evening.”


Those who are looking forward to seeing Lindsay Lohan in Speed-the-Plow Wednesday night will be sorely disappointed.

According to the Mean Girls actress, she has been struck down with an ailment and will be skipping one of her performances at London’s West End this week.

Lohan broke the on her Twitter Wednesday, writing to her followers:

The actress began acting in the David Mamet revival in previews in late September, where Lohan reportedly forgot her lines during the play’s first show. The production opened officially on Oct. 2.

The 28-year-old typically performs eight times per week, covering evening shows Monday through Saturday and two afternoon matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Days ago, Lohan shared a dressing room selfie after one of her performances, captioning the seemingly topless portrait, “Good show #speedtheplow goodnight.”
