    Default SLAPHAPPY FAYE DUNAWAY BOMBED ONSTAGE Then Fired



    Faye Dunaway was an absolute disaster onstage before getting canned from a play producers hoped to take to Broadway -- and now we know why she won't be part of the production, "Tea at Five," if it gets there.

    TMZ has obtained show reports from "Tea at Five" and they spell out exactly how the Oscar-winning actress bombed in her starring role. Let's just say the opening performances in Boston -- gotta work your way up to Broadway -- went about as bad as possible.

    According to the reports, Faye brazenly asked for lines in front of a live audience, stopped the show to complain about lighting, and railed on backstage staff from the moment she walked into the theater.


    It's pretty incredible ... the show reports say Faye used an ear piece to get lines fed to her, but still managed to screw 'em up!

    And, get this ... the reports also say Faye exclaimed, "Where am I? Line?" As for why she was flubbing so badly -- she asked someone sitting in the front row to take a hat off their knee because it was distracting her. Stupid hat!

    Faye was ultimately canned from the production, which is no longer Broadway-bound. Not yet. Instead, it's going to London's West End next year. No word on Faye's replacement.

    To be fair, she actually got a favorable review from one Boston publication. Officially, the Hollywood legend was fired for allegedly slapping crew members and throwing objects at them -- NOT for forgetting her lines.

    She's always been a real bitch, from the very beginning of her career on. A quote from other threads on her:

And it was her first big movie! Arthur Penn had tipped Warren Beatty off to use her as Bonnie. Beatty went to see her in something and agreed. He probably regretted it later, because the books say he - the producer of Bonnie & Clyde - served pretty much as a messenger boy between Faye and the other lead players. He soothed both sides to make it work.

    Then of course the great Bette Davis told some pretty damaging stuff about Dunaway's behavior on set. From the 4:35 mark.

    Her autobiography was a complete snoozefest. Enough about me, what do you think of me? Overly detailed to the point of pain.

    She's had a history of being horrible to co-workers and not doing what she's told. Did anybody think she'd get any better with age? How embarrassing.

    Some say that she did that stint on HBO's Soul Food because she needed the cash.

    Good grief, I wonder what the atmosphere on the Don Juan de Marco set was like, if Faye doesn't like learning lines and was late all the time and Marlon Brando refused to learn lines. Even assuming Johnny Depp behaved the whole time, the staff must have been stressed out over Faye and Marlon.
