Liza Minnelli’s Rep Sends ‘Cabaret’ to Shia LaBeouf

By: Pam Wright - June 29, 2014

At least there is someone out there feeling sorry for Shia LaBeouf — or maybe not.

Just a day following LaBeouf ‘s boot out of the Broadway show “Cabaret” at Studio 54, Scott Gorenstein, a rep for Liza Minnelli, reached out to the troubled actor.

Apparently Gorenstein sent LaBeouf a DVD copy of the Bob Fosse film, which starred Minnelli and earned eight Academy Awards.

“I figured he may want to find out how it ends,” quipped Gorenstein.

The 28-year-old actor was booted from the theater and ­arrested at intermission after being disruptive during the performance, spanking star Alan Cumming on the bottom and yelling obscenities during the show.

According to the criminal complaint, a security guard at Studio 54 saw LaBeouf stand up in the middle of the performance and taunt the actors onstage. The security guard asked LaBeouf to leave the theater, but he refused to go.

As LaBeouf was escorted out of Studio 54, he screamed at the arresting police officer.

“F— you. This is f—cking bullshit. Do you know my life? Do you know who the F— I am? Do you know who I am?” ranted LaBeouf.

As LaBeouf was being arrested, he spat at the cop, according to the arresting officer.

He was charged with 5 misdemeanor counts, including trespassing, disorderly conduct and harassment. Bail was set at $2,500 and he was released on his own recognizance.

If LaBeouf‘s recent behavior is all just an act as he has claimed, it’s probably time for him to drop it!

LaBeouf’s next court date is scheduled for July 24.

    Seems like someone is getting a little free publicity at the expense of a troubled actor

      Publicity? Jon-Just in case you didn’t know, Liza made the original production of Cabaret what it was . If it had no begun with her, we would no longer be seeing productions of it now. Shia is not worthy to lick her boots, much less get any free publicity off him. Troubled actor? He’s an ass with a drinking problem. Being an actor has nothing to do with it.

        Liza may had made the original production what it was, but nobody was in the theater that night to see HER. Yes, Shia is an ass with a drinking problem, but lets not forget that Liza spent many times in rehab, herself, for her drinking problem and addiction to valium. Let’s not pretend that one person’s drinking problem makes them an ass, while pretending the other person who had the drug/drinking problems is a saint, just because she was great in Cabaret….

    I hope he’s able to get help and gain some perspective. It’s very sad to see a young man implode in full view of the media. God knows, the vultures of the paparazzi are going to flap around every time they see someone falter. and yes, right now this kid’s his own worse enemy. I really hope he gets it together.
