Katie Holmes is returning to Broadway this fall in Theresa Rebecks’ play “Dead Accounts”. The five character comedy was directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’ Brien. After her recent split from Tom Cruise, she is ready to return to the theatrical aspects of her career. According to our sources Katie said, “I am thrilled to be coming back to the Broadway community and honored to be a part of this team.” Katie’s character is a woman in her 30s who lives at home. Her life becomes hectic when her brother returns home in Cincinnati under bizarre circumstances; where he has money. The comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed and whether or not your family will always welcome you back to their small town values. “Dead Accounts” will open on Broadway at New York’s Music Box Theater. Theresa Rebeck said, “It’s beyond cool, honestly. The whole team is lively as hell. I am positively tingling with delight.” Katie Holmes is the only cast member released thus far.
This is not the first time Katie Holmes has been on Broadway. In 2008, she made her debut in Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons”. Since her split from Tom Cruise, Katie made a guest appearance on “Project Runway”. A movie with Chace Crawford is set to be produced within the near future. In September, Katie will also find herself on stage at New York Fashion Week to debut Holmes & Yang, a line she co-designed. Keeping busy, she also co-wrote and co-produced a film called, “Molly”.
It looks like a number of new career opportunities have opened up for Holmes after her recent split. Maybe the saying is true, “When one door closes another opens.”
