Spilled champagne and wardrobe malfunctions may sound like a typical Lindsay Lohan night on the town, but this time it happened during her stage debut in London. During her first-night performance in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow on Tuesday, Lohan—who's "been a fixture of the London nightlife circuit in recent weeks," Radar Online notes—had to be fed lines, kick-starting a flurry of mean girl (and guy) tweets and reviews. "Oh my God, it's so embarrassing," one woman in the crowd piped up during the performance, according to the Daily Beast.

The audience seemed to forgive her "first audible prompt," as the Beast calls it, but when she needed a second line read to her, the audience started giggling. It didn't help that co-star Richard Schiff's very next line was "You have done a fantastic job!," followed by a third LiLo snafu and her line: "I know what it is to be bad, I've been bad." As the Beast points out, someone in a box seat did drop champagne on a front-row occupant, and Lohan's blouse billowed out when it wasn't supposed to, which may have aggravated her nervousness in acting on the stage for the first time. Either way, Madonna has to be breathing a sigh of relief. (Oprah wasn't too keen on Lohan's OWN reality show, either.)
