Shia LaBeouf was escorted out of Cabaret in handcuffs on Thursday.

According to eyewitness accounts, the actor was removed from the Roundabout Theatre at Studio 54 during intermission.

LaBeouf was allegedly smoking inside the auditorium and reportedly “disruptive” during the first half of the performance.

He has since been formally arrested and is facing criminal charges.

The current Broadway revival of Cabaret stars Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming.

Fellow cast member Danny Burstein reportedly wrote on Facebook, “‘Ladies and gentlemen, this is your places call for Act II. Also, to let you know, Shia LaBeouf has just been escorted from the building in handcuffs.’ Yep, that just happened.”

And Tony nominee Benj Pasek tweeted, “Just saw Shia LaBeouf in handcuffs in tears surrounded by 6 police officers outside of CABARET the musical.”

A rep for LaBeouf did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
