New York (AP) — Shia Labeouf is pulling the plug on his Broadway debut. The star of the "Transformers" franchise had been slated to appear opposite Alec Baldwin in "Orphans" but producers said Wednesday that Labeouf would not be continuing "due to creative differences." The play by Lyle Kessler, which premiered in 1983, tells the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit Philadelphia row house who decide to kidnap a wealthy man. Labeouf played one brother and Baldwin the target. "Orphans" opens March 19 at the Schoenfeld Theatre, directed by Daniel Sullivan. Producers said an announcement on Labeouf's replacement »
