Shia LaBeouf was going to be performing for the first time on Broadway in a revival of “Orphans,” however, he has just announced that he is dropping out of the project. According the the producers of the show, there were “creative differences” and that is why LaBeouf had to make his departure less than a month before the show’s opening night on Broadway.

Shia LaBeouf has been known for his performances in blockbusters including “Transformers” and the newest “Indiana Jones” film, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” He has been trying to branch out more and show that there is more to him than his leading man roles in these kinds of films. For this reason, he was recently in the film “Lawless” which was a drama and an upcoming sex opus “Nymphomaniac” as well as staring on Broadway.

Because of his departure, the show is losing one of the biggest names associated with the show. There was a lot of anticipation for his performance, however, there are still a lot of well-known stars in the show including Alec Baldwin, a star in the television show, “30 Rock.”

Shia LaBeouf was supposed to play a thief who ends up kidnapping Baldwin who plays a rich older man. Throughout the play, the two form a bond. “Orphans” was originally performed in 1983 and was later adapted into a film in 1987 by Alan J. Pakula.

Despite the setback of losing Shia LaBeouf, producers say that they will continue as scheduled. They are currently looking for a replacement and will announce who will be performing in LaBeouf’s place shortly. Previews are said to begin on March 19th and opening night will be on April 7th at the Schoenfeld Theatre. Posters are plastered all over the city to help advertise and it looks like it will be a great show.
