Project: Lohan

by D'Arcy Drollinger

directed by Ben Rimalower

A multi-media experience chronicling the life of Lindsay Lohan: actress, singer and tabloid queen. With only found text and images from tabloids, magazines, entertainment TV and Internet gossip sites, Lohan’s arc from Disney starlet to convicted felon is reconstructed in an evocative timeline as both classic myth and Shakespearean tragedy – with surprising 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 fall 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. Is Lindsay Lohan washed up at 24? Or with Google searches on the clothes she wears to court topping the 2011 Egyptian revolution, has she become the ultimate reality celebrity?
