Katie Holmes is bouncing back from her divorce to Tom Cruise by returning to Broadway. This is a great career move seeing as only serious and talented actors—oh wait—Mike Tyson just announced he will be playing Broadway soon too! Well, we sure hope she has a fulfilling experience, anyway.
Katie has been cast in a play called “Dead Accounts,” where she’s slated to play a 30-something woman who is stuck living with her parents in Cincinnati. Is that a metaphor about her marriage to Tom Cruise?
Katie made her Broadway debut in a 2008 revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” opposite John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest. Her performance brought in mixed reviews.
Wall Street Journal wrote that Katie “doesn’t know the first thing about stage acting. Anyone misguided enough to make her professional stage debut on Broadway opposite Mr. Lithgow is asking for trouble, and Ms. Holmes gets it in spades.” Ouch!
NY Daily wrote that Katie “seems comfortable and adds a fitting glint of glamour.” Nice!
USA Today stated that Katie has potential if she “finds a director who can ease her obvious self-consciousness.”
Katie been through a lot lately and surely she has grown from the experience in more ways than one. We look forward to reading the glowing reviews.
“Dead Accounts” is written by playwright Theresa Rebeck who was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her 2003 play “Omnium Gatherum;” she’s also the creator of NBC’s Smash starring Katharine McPhee.
