Katie Holmes Returns to Broadway in New Play Dead Accounts

Fresh off her high-profile divorce from Tom Cruise and now living in Manhattan with daughter Suri, Katie Holmes is getting right to work, coming back to Broadway in the upcoming new play Dead Accounts. Holmes will be playing a woman who is living with her parents while trying to get her life back on track.

Katie Holmes made her Broadway debut back in 2008, when she co-starred in a revival of the Arthur Miller play All My Sons, which also starred John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, and Patrick Wilson. Though she created more of a sensation at the stage door than onstage, Holmes did prove she could handle the rigors of performing in a Broadway show.

For her return to Broadway, Holmes has taken a different tack, choosing a brand new play by one of modern theater’s more prolific playwrights, Theresa Rebeck (Seminar, Mauritius, TV’s Smash). Rebeck specializes in intelligent, thoughtful comedies, so the play could provide a good opportunity for Holmes to distinguish herself in an interesting new part. Directed by Jack O’Brien, Dead Accounts will open at the Music Box Theater this fall.
