Judy Greer, Katie Holmes, and several other cast members from the Broadway play Dead Accounts recently sat down to discuss the project, according to Showbiz 411.
Katie Holmes, who is spreading her creative wings after splitting with Hollywood star Tom Cruise, had nothing but positive things to say about the upcoming production. The role allowed the actress to do some things she hasn’t had the opportunity to do in quite some time.
“I thought it would be so challenging,” Holmes said of her decision to head to the stage. “Because I was so young when I started working, I was always trying to catch up.”
The other reason Holmes decided to join Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer, and Josh Hamilton in Dead Accounts hits a little closer to home.
“What I really loved about this character was she’s strong underneath it all. I like her values, I like that she’s trying to figure it all out and really cares for her family,” Holmes said.
“Finally I get to yell!” she added.
During her appearance at The Greene Space to promote her stage debut, Holmes also revealed her adoration for co-star Judy Greer. She seems to have a genuine appreciation for the actress, who has appeared in such notable television series as Arrested Development, Two and a Half Men, and Showtime’s Californication, among many others.
Broadway World describes the play as follows:
“Jack’s unexpected return throws his family into a frenzy, and his sister Lorna needs answers. Is he coming home or running away? Where is his wife everyone hates? And how did he get all that money? Theresa Rebeck’s new comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back … with no questions asked.”
Dead Accounts — which stars Katie Holmes, Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton, and Jayne Houdyshell — opens at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre on November 29.
