After 71 total performances of ‘Dead Accounts,’ Katie is taking her final bow in early 2013.
The lights are going out on Broadway — for Katie Holmes, at least. Dead Accounts, the play she’s been starring in since it opened last month, is closing Jan. 6, which is seven weeks before it was supposed to end Feb. 24.
In the play, Katie plays an Ohio resident whose brother (Norbert Leo Butz) suddenly returns to town — with a $27 million secret.
“I am extremely proud of this production and the cast,” Dead Accounts producer Jeffrey Finn tells E! News. “Theresa Rebeck and Jack O’Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see Dead Accounts end on Broadway. I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon.”
Kate Holmes’ Rocky History On Broadway:
Dead Accounts may be Katie’s latest endeavor on the Great White Way, but it’s not her first.
She made her Broadway debut in Oct. 2008 in a revival of Arthur Miller‘s All My Sons, playing Ann, the love interest of Patrick Wilson‘s Chris. Her performance received mixed reviews.
“[Katie] makes a fine Broadway debut,” critiqued the Daily News. “Her rather grand speech pattern takes getting used to, but she seems comfortable and adds a fitting glint of glamour. Dancing with [John Lithgow], kissing Wilson, she makes you forget about her being Mrs. Tom Cruise. At times, however, Holmes is strangely shrill. The same holds true for actors playing the Kellers’ neighbors, who boil when they should simmer.”
