Lindsay Lohan back onstage after missing show

Lindsay Lohan has returned to the London stage for ongoing David Mamet play Speed-The-Plow after pulling out of a matinee performance due to ill health on Wednesday (29Oct14).

The Mean Girls star alerted theater fans to the fact she'd be missing both Wednesday performances via Twitter.com, but later deleted her tweet and hit the stage for the evening performance of the show.


A statement from show producers reads: "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. Miss Lohan is feeling much better today and will be performing tonight as scheduled."


Her illness floored her just days after Lohan appeared on BBC presenter Jonathan Ross' talk show and revealed she had vowed never to miss a performance after her understudy almost replaced her when she was running late.


She recalled, "I was like, 'Look, this is my show, I'm not missing a show! That will never happen!'"
