Katie Holmes Hits Broadway For New Play ‘Dead Accounts’

Katie Holmes is back on Broadway.

The 33-year-old actress returned to the Broadway stage on Monday for a performance in the new comedy Dead Accounts. But Monday’s show was just a warm-up. The show, which was written by Theresa Rebeck and stars two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz, officially opens Nov. 29.

People Magazine reports that Holmes drew applause from the crowd on several occasions. The crowd was particularly impressed when Holmes improvised flawlessly after a phone prop malfunctioned on stage.

According to the LA Times, Dead Accounts is a play about Wall Street greed. The play follows Jack, a wealthy banker who heads back to Ohio to see his family. Holmes plays Lorna, Jack’s sister, who is skeptical about how her brother made his money. A TV ad for the Broadway says: “Don’t miss Katie Holmes and Leo Butz in the Broadway comedy with a $27 million twist.”

The Washington Post reports that this isn’t Holmes first Broadway play. She made her stage debut in 2008 in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.

Holmes acting career has slowed down recently but the actress does have a few projects in the works. In addition to her new Broadway play, Holmes will be starring in Responsible Adults with Chase Crawford.

Here’s a video of Holmes talking about her experience on Dead Accounts.
