Liza Minnelli's longtime spokesperson sent Shia LaBeouf a DVD of "Cabaret" after hearing news of the troubled actor's arrest last week.

"I figured he may want to find out how it ends," Scott Gorenstein confirmed to The Huffington Post in an email.

Minnelli nabbed an Oscar for her role in 1971's "Cabaret," in which she starred opposite Joel Grey and Michael York. A Broadway revival of the musical, which opened this year, stars Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming, who is reprising his Tony Award-winning turn as the Emcee from the 1998 production.

LaBeouf was handcuffed and escorted out halfway a "Cabaret" performance on June 26, according to Variety. The 28-year-old actor was charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct after smoking in the theater and being disruptive during the first act, the entertainment trade magazine reported.

Meanwhile, Minnelli is slated to team up with Cumming for a performance in Provincetown, Massachusetts this summer.
