Shia LaBeouf has quit “Orphans” which was supposed to be his Broadway debut opposite Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge. Previews were to start on March 19. Producers cited “creative differences.”
That must have been some kind of disagreement if your main actor pulls out a month before you open.
Shia LaBeouf pulls out of Broadway debut this spring opposite Alec Baldwin
NEW YORK (AP) — Shia LaBeouf is pulling the plug on his Broadway debut.
The star of the “Transformers” franchise had been slated to appear opposite Alec Baldwin in “Orphans” but producers said Wednesday that LaBeouf would not be continuing “due to creative differences.”
The play by Lyle Kessler, which premiered in 1983, tells the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit Philadelphia row house who decide to kidnap a wealthy man. LaBeouf played one brother and Baldwin the target.
“Orphans” opens March 19 at the Schoenfeld Theatre, directed by Daniel Sullivan. Producers said an announcement on LaBeouf’s replacement would be made soon.
LaBeouf, whose films include “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” was most recently seen in John Hillcoat’s crime drama “Lawless.”
