Shia Labeouf’s arrest for harassing actors and audience members over the weekend at a performance of “Cabaret” on Broadway is old news now.
But what got lost in all the hubbub is the fact that Shia didn’t get to see the second act of the show – the cops escorted him downtown during intermission – so he doesn’t know how the whole thing ends.

Enter Liza Minnelli, who played the lead in the 1972 movie version of “Cabaret.” In a magnanimous gesture from one who herself struggled with addiction, Liza sent a DVD copy of the movie to Shia – you know, so he could at least know what happened while he was in handcuffs.
