Lindsay Lohan made her West End debut on Wednesday night in the long-awaited staging of Speed-The-Plow, and everyone is just dying to know how it went!
Unfortunately, it's actually a bit difficult to tell.

Reviews are so mixed, it's tough to figure out where expectation ends and real criticism begins! By some accounts, Lindsay was a mess who couldn't remember her lines.
By others, she was more prepared than some of her costars AND had her star quality turned up to 11! What's real?
Here's what we're hearing:
According to witnesses — um, we mean audience members — LiLo forgot her lines and had to be prompted at least FIVE TIMES over the course of the play.
But one of her costars, West Wing vet Richard Schiff, reportedly needed to be prompted a couple times as well. Maybe it was just the opening night jitters?
On the positive side, by many accounts Lindsay may have had some trouble with David Mamet's sharp, fast dialogue, but she was still utterly charming in the role.
The good news about mixed reviews is that Lindsay's debut was not the train wreck many feared. And she has plenty more nights to perfect her performance.
Speed-The-Plow runs until November 29th.
