Katie Holmes debuted her most recent family comedy, “Dead Accounts” on the Broadway stage during a Tuesday performance. Critics all agreed that the actress’ interpretation was very good, given the many rounds of applause she received from the public.
Theresa Rebeck’s new comedy, “Dead Accounts” will most likely draw large numbers of viewers to the Broadway Theater. The celebrities she cast in the play will also contribute to the success of the show because critics were impressed by their first performance.
Katie Holmes, who is co-starring with other important Broadway names, such as, Judy Greer and Norbert Leo Butz, stole the spotlight during the entire evening. She plays the part of a skeptical sister who is waiting for her prodigal brother to return to their home in Ohio. According to the public, the actress shined the whole time she was on stage. She even managed to make an improvisation, when the phone she was using in one scene broke. The actress fixed it by slamming the phone into place as if she was trying to punctuate her dialogue.
Holmes, who recently divorced her husband of six years, was accustomed to the Broadway stage. The first time she played a part on the prestigious stage was in 2008 when she was cast in Arthur Miller’s play “All My Sons”. Katie and the rest of the actors received standing ovation at the end of the show. The play is still in previews, so people won’t be able to see it until November 29, the date when it will be officially released.
Even though she made quite a splash with her Broadway interpretation, Katie Holmes is still a down-to-earth person. Unlike her colleagues, who left home by cabs or personal cars, the actress and her bodyguard opted for a cheaper means of transportation, namely, the subway.
