Lindsay Lohan to Take on Role Originally Played by ... Madonna Broadway.com

Lindsay Lohan has signed on to play a role that was originally played by Madonna.

"Dates are announced; all the notoriously tardy leading lady has to do now is turn up on time for eight shows a week," reports Broadway.com.

The article continues, "Lindsay Lohan will headline David Mamet’s play 'Speed-the-Plow' in London. Directed by Lindsay Posner, the 'Mean Girls' star will make her stage debut at London's Playhouse Theatre. The limited engagement will begin performances on September 24 and run through November 30."

The story notes, "Lohan will play Karen, the role originated by Madonna in the 1988 Broadway production."

" 'Speed-the-Plow' focuses on two high-powered Hollywood executives, Charlie Fox and Bobby Gould, who have come up from the mailroom together," the article says, adding, "Charlie brings Bobby a surefire hit with a major star attached. Bobby seems certain to give the green light, until his beautiful new secretary [Karen--the part Lohan will play] gets involved."

No other casting was announced.
