Mischa Barton Gets A Police Escort

Posted Monday May 5, 2008 1:14 PM GMT

A few months ago, the sight of a police officer would have been an uneasy moment for Mischa Barton. But last night, it was just what she was looking for.

The “Oh in Ohio” babe was out with her mother Nuala for the opening night of the Broadway comedy Boeing-Boeing in New York City.

And as the Barton ladies tried to leave the Longacre Theatre, the crowd surrounding them ended up being a little overwhelming, necessitating a police escort.

Boeing-Boeing sounds like it could be the next big thing on Broadway. After all, it stars Studio 60/West Wing actor Bradley Whitford, and the opening night had stars like Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Gina Gershon, and Howard Stern (along with fiancé Beth Ostrosky) filling the seats.
