Shia LaBeouf Leaves Broadway’s ‘Orphans’ a Month Before Previews

The ole ‘creative differences’ line, huh?

Shia LaBeouf was to make his Broadway debut opposite Alec Baldwin in Orphans, which was supposed to begin previews March 19th. But, that’s not happening now.

A just released statement from the producers says that, “Due to creative differences, the producers of Orphans and Shia LaBeouf will be parting ways and he will not be continuing with the production.”

I’m not the biggest fan of LaBeouf but I was still planning to see the show because I love Alec Baldwin so damn much. I would love to know what happened behind the scenes.

An announcement on the replacement for the role of “Treat” will be made shortly.

Orphans, by Lyle Kessler and directed by Daniel Sullivan, stars Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge and all of the previous dates remain unchanged so far with previews beginning March 19th and opening night on April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street).
